My NAP can laugh at the handicapper and shrug off rise for easy win



TEMPLEGATE takes on Sunday’s racing confident of banging in a few winners.

BIG BLUE MOON (3.00 Uttoxeter, nap)

After a false start over fences, trainer Tom Lacey switched him back to the smaller obstacles where he has been in fine form with wins at Warwick and Hereford last time out.

The handicapper has been more than fair by hiking him just 4lb for that comprehensive success where he went from the front.

He stays a bit further than this, which is a major plus at Uttoxeter, and he can take another step forward.

NEXT LEFT (4.10 Uttoxeter, nb)

He took to chasing at the first time of asking when scooting in at Warwick 15 days ago.

He was staying on strongly over 2m4f there and this longer distance should bring more improvement with that first run under his belt. The Skeltons have an excellent record at the track and can improve it here.

FIVE DOLLAR FINE (2.50 Kelso, treble) 

Most read in Horse Racing

He has won his past two races at Hexham with a bit left in the tank. 

This longer trip holds no fears and he can bring up the hat-trick for local trainer Ann Hamilton.
