Templegate’s horse racing tips: Kempton, Wolverhampton, Lingfield and Wetherby – top betting preview for the racing this Friday, January 4
NORTONTHORPELEGEND (2.55 Wetherby, Nap) was impressive when winning at Catterick last time out and has another big chance.
He shoulders a 7lb penalty for that convincing success but his excellent amateur takes most of that off and this is a clear drop in class.

FAMILY FORTUNES (3.50 Kempton, nb) goes well here and just left his challenge a little late when second at Lingfield last time out.
He came with a right rattle there and should go mighty close in similar company. He likes to come from behind but will hopefully be a little closer to the pace today.
GEORDIE B (1.00 Lingfield, treble) took a step forward when second in a bobbing finish at Hereford last time.
He looks to be crying out for this longer distance and is open to improvement on his third run over timber.
