THE top-class action continues on Sunday and Templegate is looking to keep his good run going.
Read on to find out who he thinks will land the spoils – and give you an post-Christmas bonus.
PERFECT MYTH (1.55 Kempton, nap)
She is consistent and put in another excellent effort when a close second at Wincanton last time.
She improved for a step up in distance there and the extra half-mile she tackles today should help further.
DOMINATEUR (2.50 Chepstow, nb)
He has won his two chases around in Chepstow in style and looks just the type for the Welsh National.
Those victories both came in testing ground including a big novice contest on this card 12 months ago.
A three-runner race at Sandown last time was never going to suit but he’ll be spot on for fitness and has improvement to come.
