Horse Racing Tips: Templegate picks Newbury Nap for the Betfair Hurdle among today's fancies

TEMPLEGATE has made his picks for Newbury and fancies Buzz to make an impact in the 3.35pm today.

Here, he reveals his top picks for Sunday's action at Newbury, Uttoxeter and Market Rasen.


BUZZ (3.35 Newbury, nap)

He came from miles back to grab second in the Betfair Trophy last time and has talented Kevin Brogan taking off a valuable 5lb.

He has few miles on the clock and can take another step forward.

SOUTHFIELD HARVEST (1.50 Newbury, nb)

He was a big improver when second on his handicap debut at Wincanton on Boxing Day.

He finished strongly over 2m5f so should be much happier going up to this trip. It’s still early days and there’s a lot more to come.

MINELLA DRAMA (2.05 Market Rasen, treble)

He looks too good after his narrow second in a Haydock Grade 2 last time. That built on back-to-back wins at Sedgefield and Bangor.

This step up in trip should suit and he handles soft ground well.
