Horse racing tips: Paul Nicholls' runner in action at Sandown can build our bank ahead of Cheltenham Festival
TEMPLEGATE turns his eye to Saturday looking to build the bank before Cheltenham.
Read on to find out his tips for another big day of racing.
MIRANDA (2.25 Sandown, nap)
She has top weight but Angus Cheleda was on board when she won at Ludlow in December and his 7lb claim can make the difference. Paul Nicholls’ mare looked classy when taking a Donny Grade 2 last time when this trip was ideal. She’s capable of improving again.
