Horse racing tips: Templegate reckons Jamie Spencer can ride his NAP to victory at Chelmsford

TEMPLEGATE is back and looking to build up to a huge weekend with a few winners on Thursday.

Here, he reveals his top picks for today's action.

MARLY (6.30 Chelmsford, nap)

Marly can make a winning start to her British career. She has some fancy form in Europe including a narrow third at Listed level.

She was a close-up in that class on her last run in November and the booking of Jamie Spencer catches the eye.

EN COEUR (1.30 Leicester, nb)

He was an easy winner at Plumpton last month and can handle a 6lb rise in the weights. Soft ground suits and he looks solid again.

DORKING LAD (4.50 Sandown, treble)

He can turn his run of seconds into a win. He’s fit from a neck second in a jumper’s bumper seven days ago and looks well handicapped back over hurdles.

Has had a wind op and looks capable of improvement.

1.00     Gallic Geordie 

Won well two runs ago and can be forgiven poor effort latest.

Has improved lately with a win and solid second.

3.40     Pipesmoker     

Was going really well before his break and can strike.

4.15     Highest Sun     

Come nicely down the weights and should enjoy this trip.

4.50     Dorking Lad (treble)    

Keeps hitting the post and can land deserved victory.

Improved effort when third at Wolverhampton last time.

4.55     Mid Day Rush
