Racing tips: Templegate NAPS Epsom Derby hero Adam Kirby to strike in style at Ascot

TEMPLEGATE goes in search of some big winners on an absolutely massive Saturday of racing.

Scroll down for our man's top tips for all the racing in the UK – and don't forget to take in his selections for Longchamp too.

RIVER NYMPH (3.50 Ascot, nap)

He can win another hot Ascot handicap for Clive Cox and Adam Kirby. They teamed up to win the 27-runner Victoria Cup with this game four-year-old in May. He’s only been out twice since and comes here a fresh horse after a decent comeback in a Newbury Listed contest last time. He relishes this trip and is only 4lb higher than that last success.

MOTHER EARTH (2.55 Newmarket, nb)

She was an impressive 1,000 Guineas winner here in May and she hasn’t done much wrong since. She went close in the Lowther on the July course before taking a French Group 1. She should have added to her tally in the red-hot Matron Stakes at Leopardstown as she was coming with a winning run only to be badly hampered. Ryan Moore can steet her home here.

HURRICANE IVOR (2.05 Ascot, treble)

He is going from strength to strength and got a deserved change of luck when winning the Portland Handicap at Doncaster. He more than matched that form when taking the Group 3 World Trophy at Newbury last time. He is the one to beat on this drop in class.
