Horse racing tips: After massive 14-1 Nap WINNER, Templegate picks out 7-1 Haydock fancy to bring home the bacon

TEMPLEGATE is sitting miles clear at the top of Britain's Naps table – and can land you another big winner on Saturday.

Read on below to see our man's top bets on a busy weekend.

RIVER NYMPH (3.30 Haydock, nap)

Can make a splash in the John Of Gaunt Stakes. Clive Cox’s flyer put up a Group-class performance when winning the 27-runner Victoria Cup at Ascot last time.

He loves this seven-furlong trip as he showed when bounding home there with plenty left in the tank. Some cut in the ground is ideal and he looks the type to take a big step forward as a four-year-old.

HYPERFOCUS (1.45 Haydock, nb)

He has three wins and a second from five visits to the track with this six-furlong trip right up his street.

Tim Easterby’s hope had a quiet comeback at York last time so has slipped to just 1lb above his last victory, which came here in September.

KYBER CRYSTAL (2.00 Beverley, treble)

There was lots to like about her debut second at Doncaster earlier this month.

She travelled really strongly in the tacky ground and the form has been franked by winner Ebro River taking a Sandown Listed contest on Thursday.

Adrian Keatley’s flyer has lots more to come and can take a similar step forward here.
