Horse racing tips: Templegate NAP will love the step up in distance at Doncaster on Friday

TEMPLEGATE tackles Friday’s racing confident of finding winners.

Read on for our man’s tips, back a horse by clicking their odds and book your spot at our Cheltenham Festival preview night.

TWOSHOTSOFTEQUILA (2.00 Doncaster, nap).

He has gone close on his past two starts, both at Sedgefield, and this longer trip can bring improvement from Rebecca Menzies’ six-year-old.

CHAGALL (4.10 Lingfield, nb) 

He has been knocking on the door at this level and finished well when second here three weeks ago. A repeat of that would be good enough.

CALGARY TIGER (4.30 Newbury, treble) 

He was impressive when scoring at Wincanton on his chase debut. He has been hiked just 4lb for that and can score again.
