TEMPLEGATE has been firing in the winners of late and he's confident of continuing his good form on Oaks day.
Read on to find our man's top tips for Friday as the Derby Festival gets underway.
ZEYAADAH (4.30 Epsom, nap)
She was unlucky at Chester last time when needing her comeback.
She finished full of running and will relish this longer trip. Handling the Roodee’s roller coaster bodes well for Epsom.

BLUE CUP (3.45 Epsom, nb)
He ran well here on comeback in April when a close-up fifth in a similar race.
He didn’t fire at York after that so has had a nudge down the weights and the first-time hood can help with Oisin Murphy taking over on top.
STORTING (2.35 Epsom, treble)
He was impressive when winning the Thirsk Hunt Cup last time, digging deep to fight them off in the final furlong.
A 5lb rise in the weights is fair for that and it’s a wise move to keep him at the mile.
Good debut win and solid second at Newbury last time out.
2.35 Storting (treble)
Much improved when winning Thirsk Hunt Cup latest.
Good win at Ascot last time and deserves this crack at a Group 1.
3.45 Blue Cup (nb)
Ran well on last visit here and looks ahead of the handicapper.
4.30 ZEYAADAH (NAP)
Good effort when not getting clear run in Cheshire Oaks.
Good second in the Greenham and best back at this trip.
Battled well to score at Goodwood last time out.
Ran well in much stronger race at York last time out.

4.10 Gometra Ginty

4.50 God Of Dreams
Bit in hand when scoring at Musselburgh latest.
Knocking on the door and right in the mix again.
Third in Swinton Hurdle latest and this is much easier.
Good win latest and can take another step forward.
Went close at Huntingdon last time and should go close.
2.50 Some Detail
Improved effort when second at Huntingdon latest.
3.25 High Noon
Fair 4lb rise for winning last time out.
4.00 Six One Nine

Going close and should improve for this longer trip.
5.35 Equally Fast
Went close here last time and will be right there again.
6.10 Super Cub
Two good efforts so far and capable of better again.
Good win last time and longer distance should suit.
7.10 Rains Of Castamere
Good third at Nottingham latest and should go close.
7.40 Bay Watch
Unlucky when third over course and distance latest.
8.10 Wings Of A Dove
Down in class after solid effort in Listed here last time.
