Racing tips: Templegate NAP can score for Paul Nicholls at Newbury who has his ideal conditions

TEMPLEGATE looks to bang in a few winners on Friday.

Read on for our man's top tips and back a horse by clicking their odds below.

SWITCH HITTER (2.30 Newbury, nap)

Has had a nice break since a decent effort at Hereford over a trip too short. He races off the same mark and conditions are ideal for this Nicholls star to strike.

VENTURA RASCAL (1.35 Leicester, nb)

Signed off last season with a narrow win at Ayr and a 3lb rise is fair. He is well up to this level and Kevin Ryan enjoyed a turf success at Donny over the weekend.

BEAKSTOWN (3.30 Ayr, nb)

Looks the one to beat. Trainer Dan Skelton targets this race having won three out of the last four renewals. He takes a drop in class after running well in better races recently.
