TEMPLEGATE has been banging in the winners again this week – and fancies another very profitable day at Royal Ascot.
Our man – who leads the national Nap tipping table – reveals his picks for day five below.
BROOME (3.40 Royal Ascot, nap)
He drops in class and rises in trip and that could prove to be a winning combination. He scored in this class over 1m2f last month before stepping up when beaten in a head-bobber for a Curragh Group 1 last time. The move up to 1m4f looks a wise move and he handles any ground.

DREAM OF DREAMS (4.20 Royal Ascot, nb)
He was denied in a heartbreaking finish for this race last year when Ryan Moore’s mount charged home only for the line to come too soon. He went down by a head and was in front yards past the post. He made up for that with a good Newbury win before taking the Group 1 Haydock Sprint Cup over this trip on soft ground. He warmed up with a bloodless win at Windsor last month, handles any going and will be right there again.
FALCON EIGHT (6.10 Royal Ascot, treble)
He loved every yard of the Chester Cup’s 2m2f and can see out this longer distance for the world-class team of Dermot Weld and Frankie Dettori. He was back from almost a year off on the Roodee and may well improve for that run.
Templegate has a pick in every race on Saturday.
Good winner at Goodwood and has a lot more to offer.
