TEMPLEGATE is back and fancies a Tom Symonds runner to keep up the yard's hot-streak.
Read on to see who he thinks will land the spoils on Friday across the tracks and for Day 1 of the Long Walk meeting at Ascot.
LLANDINABO LAD (2.30 Ascot, nap)
He was impressive when landing a Haydock Listed contest last month when soft ground was ideal.
Richard Johnson stays on board and can guide him to another big win for in-form trainer Tom Symonds.
BIRKENHEAD (1.30 Southwell, nb)
Les Eyre’s three-year-old likes it here and went down in a tight finish last time.
He was a game winner on his previous visit and the handicapper has left his mark alone.
LION TOWER (11.55 Southwell, treble)
He didn’t get the run of the race here last time before boxing on well to grab second.
The drop back to this distance seemed to suit well and he’s capable of going close again.
12.45 Steal A March
Unlucky behind Castle Robin on comeback and can turn tables.
Getting better with every run and went close at Chepstow latest.
1.55 Sir Valentine
Good enough to win this if brushing up his jumping.
2.30 LLANDINABO LAD (NAP)
Good Listed win at Haydock last time and more to come.
Decent hurdler and thrown into deep end by Henderson for chase debut.

Goes well and unlucky second last time out.
Has been found a very soft race and this trip suits.
