What Does NB mean?

NB is a term used frequently in horse racing and it refers to ‘Next Best’. It is not the most fancied bet of the day but it should go close. So you should always take notice of the NB selection by Templegate as this selection should have a good chance of doing well in the race. Templegate was a steward one day when a favourite was beaten by a relatively unheralded horse. On the way to the weighing room, the jockey of the winning horse turned to Templegate and said: “Please sir, can you tell me what’s so special about that horse?”

What Does templegate’s treble mean?

We are all used to backing the NAP, or the next best, well, you can add another horse into that mix, which would make up the Templegate treble. This is three selections put into one ‘accumulator’ sort of bet which forms one main bet for the customer. Of course, these types of bets have the bigger returns however they come up at pretty long odds as of course, all three selections need to win if you are to take home your winnings from the bookies.

Check the ITV racing schedule for information on which races will be broadcast. Make sure you make a note his selections around the major race meetings.

Templegate believes that the best horse will win the race not necessarily the one at the most popular price. He will try to be different and sometimes this can work in his favour & at other times he gets it wrong.
