Horse racing tips: Templegate NAPS this Frankie Dettori ride on day three of Boodles May Festival at Chester

TEMPLEGATE looks to kick start another weekend of winners with some big Friday picks.

Read on to find out who our man thinks can land the spoils at Chester and elsewhere.

He represents a world-class team in Dermot Weld and Frankie Dettori. He has few miles on the clock in recent years but has shown his best over marathon trips.

He was a good fifth in the Group 1 Cadran at Longchamp and has a Sandown Listed win on his CV. Weld will have him ready after a long break and he can go close.

ARMORY (2.15 Chester, nb)

He held his own in Group 1 company last season with a good third in the Irish Champion Stakes before going close in the Cox Plate in Australia. This trip is ideal, he’ll like the ground and has scope to improve.

RESTORER (3.45 Chester, treble)

He ended last season with a head-bobbing win here ahead of Lawn Ranger. He can confirm that form but they both have a live chance.

Went close over this distance on last visit to Ascot.
