Horse racing tips: Templegate Nap and best bets for Thursday with Paul Nicholls' runner fancied at Taunton

Horse racing tips: Templegate Nap and best bets for Thursday with Paul Nicholls' runner fancied at Taunton

December 9, 2020

TEMPLEGATE takes on Thursday's races with his eagle eye.

SunSport's resident tipster has been in a red-hot run of form and hopes are high he will continue to bang in the winners today.

GLAJOU (3.17 Taunton, nap)

He was impressive when scooting in at Southwell earlier this month.

Harry Cobden was unmoved in the saddle as this young chaser scored with plenty in hand.

This is a hotter contest but it’s just his third spin over fences and Paul Nicholls will get a lot more out of him.

LASKADINE (2.25 Newcastle, nb)

She was asked to come from a mile back when running into second at Hexham latest.

Aidan Coleman takes over today and will hopefully have her a bit closer to the pace.

KYLLA LOOKS (5.00 Chelmsford, treble)

She had almost four lengths in hand when scoring at Wolverhampton ten days ago.

Stepping up to this trip worked wonders and she can defy a penalty.


11.45   Donald Dux     

Good comeback run at Doncaster and repeat should be good enough.

12.15   Capard King     

Yard’s chasers are flying and he needed his Kelso comeback.

12.45   Enqarde          

Went close on UK and yard debut at Ascot last time after long break.

1.20     Whoshotthesheriff     

Powered home at Carlisle and can take another step forward.

1.50     Cryogenics      

Promising run when second at Sedgefield last time out.

2.25     Laskadine (nb) 

Kept on well at Hexham latest and looks well weighted.

2.55     Empire De Maulde      

Beaten in a head-bobber at Donny and best over this trip.

3.25     Marty Time     

Well bred and from yard that has plenty of winners at this level.


12.07   Paricolor         

Every chance of landing a hat-trick of wins at this selling level.

12.37   Atholl Street    

Won easily on hurdles debut despite running green.

1.10     Boothill           

Looked a hot prospect in bumpers and should make a nice hurdler.

1.42     Passing Shadow          

Should have won at Huntingdon last time and can make amends.

2.15     Palmers Hill     

Solid handicap hurdler who looks a good prospect for chasing.

2.47     When You’re Ready    

Finished strongly when third over shorter at Leicester latest.

3.17     GLAJOU (NAP) 

Had lots in hand when winning on second chase outing at Southwell.

3.47     How’s The Cricket       

In solid form and should improve for this step up in distance.


12.22   Hope You Do   

Easy winner on debut in France and can make a winning start.

12.52   Patroclus         

Relatively expensive buy who comes from leading connections.

1.27     Zambella         

Good Listed winner on chase debut at Bangor last time out.

1.57     King D’Argent  

Best run over hurdles when third at Warwick latest.

2.32     Invicta Lake     

Looked rusty when an encouraging fifth at Exeter last time out.

3.02     Manofthemoment      

Did well when stepping up to this distance and Southwell.

3.32     Blairgowrie     

Should know his job for Nicky Henderson on debut.


4.00     Sabousi           

Loads of promise when third at Kempton on debut.

4.30     Kaheall 

Took well to the all-weather when scoring at Wolver last time out.

5.00     Kylla Looks (treble)     

Quickened well to win easily at Wolverhampton latest.

5.30     Rockesbury     

Consistent and another good effort at Wolver last time out.

6.00     Plantadream   

Ran well before not quite staying at Lingfield over further last time.

6.30     Nigel Nott       

Loves it around here and landed another win seven days ago.

7.00     Big Country     

Will improve for comeback at Kempton and likes this trip.

7.30     Scofflaw          

Went close in similar race latest and 3lb claimer could make difference.

8.00     Splash Of Verve          

Went close last time and should be right there again.
