Glorious Goodwood tips: Templegate unleashes MASSIVE 12-1 NAP for day four and fancies a winner for The Queen


TEMPLEGATE goes hunting for more winners on day four of Glorious Goodwood.

Read on to find our man’s top tips.

THE GRAND VISIR (1.50 Goodwood, nap)

He stays all day long as he showed when placing for the second time in the marathon Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot last month. He ran well again dropped back to two miles when second in a Sandown Listed contest last time. He goes on any ground and he can go better than last year’s close-up fourth.

PATH OF THUNDER (3.00 Goodwood, nb)

He was like greased lightning when running away with a hot handicap at Newmarket earlier this month. He travelled strongly and had lots left in the tank. A 3lb penalty gives him every chance of following up.

WINK OF AN EYE (5.20 Goodwood, treble)

Is improving with every run and took another big step forward when scoring at Sandown last time. The Queen’s runner should be happy over this extra furlong and goes on any ground.
