Horse racing tips: Templegate reckons this high-class colt can give Sir Michael Stoute a big winner at Sandown

SUNSPORT tipster Templegate takes on Friday's top quality action looking to continue a good run of form.

Read on below to find our man's top tips.

HIGHEST GROUND (2.25 Sandown, nap)

He can give Sir Michael Stoute another Gordon Richards Stakes win. He was lightly raced last season and pushed Thunderous close in the Dante at York.

He came back from a break in the Darley Stakes at Newmarket in October but the soft ground didn’t suit. The yard’s horses often improve with age and he can take a step forward.

TRAWLERMAN (3.35 Sandown, nb)

He didn’t have to leave first gear when winning a Pontefract maiden earlier this month and can handle this big hike in class. He is bred to be a champion over this trip and clocked a useful time despite not being extended.

GRAN PARADISO (2.40 Perth, treble)

He is a stayer in form after his 19-length win at Sedgefield last time. He has been hiked 10lb but that looks fair and this extra half-mile should be no problem.

Expensive buy who showed promise when third on debut.

In cracking form on AW and likes the turf too.

3.35     Trawlerman (nb)         

Clocked a good time when winning a maiden on comeback.

4.10     Chiasma          

Well bred and should make a promising start for Dettori and Gosden.
