CALL THE COPS (nap) should come to our aid in Musselburgh’s 3.15.
A lot of water has flowed under the bridge since he won at the Cheltenham Festival four years ago.
He appreciated the drop to this sort of grade when runner-up at Newcastle last month and today’s better ground is just what he wants.
DOLLY DUPREE (5.10 Southwell, nb) came home well to win similar race over 7f at this track three weeks ago.
He looks the type to follow up with the extra furlong likely to help.
Templegate’s Treble Selection
NAP – CALL THE COPS, 3.15 Musselburgh: “Shaped with much promise when second at Newcastle last month and could claim an overdue success for Ben Haslam.”
NB – DOLLY DUPREE, 5.10 Southwell: “A winner at 8-1 here over 7f on her latest outing earlier this month, winning by 3/4l.”
TREBLE – SAINT EQUIANO, 4.10 Southwell: “Stayed on well last time out and has been raised 4lb for his track and trip success on New Year’s Day.”
SAINT EQUIANO (4.10 Southwell, treble) made all the running to see off Custard The Dragon over today’s course and distance on New Year’s Day.
He’s not been seen since but that’s not a problem as he tends to run his best races when fresh.
