Racing tips: Templegate NAPS Southwell chance who hit crossbar last time and can go one better

TEMPLEGATE looks to keep banging in the winners on Sunday.

Read on for our man's top tips – and don't forget you can back a horse by clicking their odds in the bet slips below. Good luck!

KIRITIMATI ISLAND (3.30 Southwell, nap)

He hit the crossbar on his handicap debut here last time. After missing the kick he finished like a train into second. This longer trip should be ideal.

MISTER WHITAKER (3.10 Kelso, nb)

He was last seen over fences at the Cheltenham Festival and he’s got form in much hotter contests than this. He’s been running well over hurdles and has had a wind op before coming back to the bigger obstacles.

EVEQUE (3.40 Kelso, treble)

He was second on chase debut and followed up with another narrow defeat at Wetherby. This looks a softer race and he can strike.
