TEMPLEGATE returns on Thursday keen to bang in some winners as Ayr's Gold Cup fixture kicks off.
Read on for our man's top tips.
NAKEETA (5.50 Ayr, nap)
He won this race 12 months ago and put in one of his best efforts since when just denied at Ripon last time. He takes a drop in class today which makes him hard to beat.
BUOYANT (1.30 Yarmouth, nb)
He was a good second at Ascot before going close again at Salisbury. Ryan Moore stays on board and can steer Martyn Meade’s youngster to victory.
THRILLA IN MANILA (5.18 Ayr, treble)
He improved for a more patient ride when second at Catterick last week and this race is easier.
