TEMPLEGATE remains in red-hot form and continues to sit pretty at the top of the NAPs table.

So read on to find out who he fancies on a busy Wednesday of action.

GIFT HORSE (7.05 Kempton, nap)

She was unlucky not to score at Lingfield last time with the post coming just too soon after being forced out wide.

Any improvement over this extra furlong would be good enough to get off the mark.

L’OPERATEUR (5.25 Kempton, nb)

Was given too much to do last time and can make amends here back on the all weather.

SIGNAL TWENTY NINE (2.30 Yarmouth, treble)

Showed plenty on his handicap debut and this switch to a more conventional track will help.


1.00 Thomas Lanfiere – just did enough in weak race last time and this shouldn’t take much more winning

1.30 Penywern Taverner – not much form to go on but stable does well at this track

2.00 Estate House – beaten on comeback run but still looks well-treated

2.30 Signal Twenty Nine (treb) – was well-backed last time and should improve past rivals now

3.05 Let Me Be – should complete four-timer under a penalty

3.40 Pax Britannica – has done his winning on the all weather but might be more to come back on turf

4.10 Mr Fayez – makes first start for yard in a weak race and very interesting if supported in betting

4.40 Astrogem – up 5lbs for an easy win last time and might still be ahead of the handicapper


1.15 Goudhurst Star – showed enough on debut to think up to winning a race such as this

1.45 Blazing Saddles – very consistent at this level and should handle conditions better than most if it gets testing

2.20 Danilo D’Airy – bolted up here last time to land huge gamble and could be up to winning again

2.55 Blue Ribbon – came good last time out and gets heaps of weight from mostly exposed rivals

3.30 Hollywoodien – bumped into well-treated rival last time and looks set to win soon

4.00 Captain Cattistock – looks a cut above rivals for yard still firing in the winners

4.30 Antony – can strike off lower hurdle mark in open race


2.10 Showtime Mahomes – ran a blinder on debut and the winner has since franked the form

2.45 Tamaska – came good last time at Thirsk and first-time cheekpieces can bring out more again

3.20 A La Voile – improved no end last season and if kicking on from reappearance is the one to beat

3.50 Caballero – bumped into well-handicapped winner last time and runs off some weight here

4.20 Ready Freddie Go – ran a big career best last time and could still have more to come

4.55 Flammarion – beaten favourite last time out but looks a winner in waiting at this level

5.30 Ayr Poet – too keen last time but can strike again down in trip


5.10 Accordingtogino – has been found a good opening by the Skelton team

5.45 Statuario – lightly-tried over fences compared to plenty in this and can strike for in-form stable

6.20 Independence – not much form to go on and little makes appeal on paper so this last time out winner can go in again

6.50 An Tailliur – should complete hat-trick with handicapper playing catch-up

7.20 Subway Surf – doesn’t need to improve to take this and has some useful back form

7.50 Taras Day – won tidily on reappearance and looks a horse to follow at this level

8.20 San Agustin – improved up in trip last time and bumped into well-treated horse


5.25 L’Operateur (nb) – left too much to do last time at Windsor and should make amends here

6.00 Bonneval – gradually progressive so far and looks on generous mark on handicap bow

6.35 Smart Start – not seen since promising debut but well drawn and can kick on again now

7.05 Gift Horse (NAP) – narrowly beaten last time and clearly improved for switch to all weather

7.35 Valyrian Steel – needed run last time and lightly-raced type can strike with that under his belt

8.05 Paxos – can land hat-trick with handicapper still playing catch-up

8.35 Hammy End – has plummeted down weight and jockey booking gives hope now
