Templegate’s best bets for Saturday’s meeting at Strasbourg live on Sky Sports Racing


Templegate’s Trio

RIVER DOWN (10.50) returned to turf to go close over this trip at Cagnes last time out. She is best after a break and has shown her top form with a little give in the ground.

Sant Angelo has a cracking record at Strasbourg with two wins and two places from four visits. He is proven in his class and relishes the trip so should be right there again.

Global Passion is consistent and loves some cut underfoot. He scored in this class at Toulouse in February and is another to consider.

VICTORIOUS CHAMP (11.20) can be hit and miss but he has solid form over this distance and was in good form at Chantilly two runs ago. He takes a drop in class here which could help him regain the winning thread.

Bissin looks a danger with a claimer in the saddle. He was a decent this at level when last seen at Pont De Vivaux in March and likes the trip.

SHANNKIYR (12.50) has shown promise on all three starts including when a fair fourth in Class 2 company at Vichy last time out. That was back in August so he may need this but is taking a hefty drop in grade over a trip that should suit nicely.

Dictee is coming back from an even longer break but landed a maiden nicely before her layoff and looks a fair prospect.
