Racing tips: Templegate NAPS unbeaten horse at Newbury with title-chasing William Buick doing the steering

TEMPLEGATE returns on Thursday keen to bang in some winners as Ayr's Gold Cup meeting continues.

Read on for our man's top tips.

KING OF CONQUEST (2.55 Newbury, nap)

Charlie Appleby won this race last year with the useful Yibir and has another hot prospect on his hands. William Buick was on board when he sauntered to victory at Sandown last month and stepping up in trip can bring lots of improvement.

DARTINGTON (4.35 Newbury, nb)

He never runs a bad race and was less than a length away at Epsom eight days ago. This distance is ideal and the handicapper has left his mark alone.

STRAITS OF MOYLE (1.35 Ayr, treble)

He struck with plenty in hand at Carlisle last week. He powered up the hill there and can cope with this stronger grade carrying a 6lb penalty for that smooth success.

AYR

1.00     Azure Blue       

Improved when second at Carlisle and this trip will suit.

1.35     Straits Of Moyle (treble)

Unlucky at Ripon last time and goes off the same mark again.

Finished strongly when third at Musselburgh last time out.

NEWBURY

1.15     Dark Swansong           

Took a step forward when second at Salisbury last time.

1.45     Silk Romance  

Had lots in hand when scoring at Newmarket last time out.

2.20     Croupier          

Improved to score on his handicap debut over course and distance.

2.55     King Of Conquest (NAP)          

Looked a nice prospect when winning on debut at Sandown.

3.30     Al Suhail          

Back to form at Haydock and saves best for this distance.

4.05     Makram          

Consistent and another good run at Newmarket last time.

Convincing win at Bangor and can strike again.

Two wins and a second heading here and trip should be ideal.

Good win here last time and this looks no tougher.

4.45     Eglantine De Seuil       

Two wins in similar races this season and can score again.

Solid fourth at Nottingham and won’t be far away again.

8.00     Pedestal          

Good effort at Chepstow and Hollie Doyle on board today.
