TEMPLEGATE is sitting pretty at the top of Britain’s Nap table after a plethora of winners.
Read on below to find out who he fancies on Thursday.
HANDSOME (2.25 Newmarket, nap)
James Fanshawe’s three-year-old caught the eye when second on his handicap debut at Leicester last month. He stayed on strongly over 1m2f so this longer trip should be ideal with more to come.
