Templegate NAPS 4-1 shot who drops in class at Sedgefield for in-form trainer

TEMPLEGATE takes on Sunday’s card confident of a few winners.

Read on for our man’s top tips over the jumps at Kempton and Sedgefield.

ZUCKERBERG (2.55 Sedgefield, nap)

He would have finished closer than third at Southwell last time but for a final fence blunder. This race looks easier and trainer Jennie Candlish is in decent form.

NAIZAGAI (1.30 Kempton, nb)

He caught the eye with a close-up second on his first spin over fences at Sedgefield. He looks on a fair weight and doesn’t need much more to get off the mark.

MERCIAN PRINCE (2.40 Kempton)

He won on his last run over this course and distance. He went close at Worcester latest and can go close again.


1.00     Impulsive One 

Two good wins so far and has plenty more to come.
