Racing tips: Templegate NAPS 11-4 shot who will love the mud at Haydock for in-form Olly Murphy

TEMPLEGATE goes in search of more winners as the Christmas action continues.

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

MACHO MOVER (12.30 Haydock, nap)

He loved ploughing through the mud when scoring over course and distance earlier this month. He gets on well with today’s 6lb claimer and looks hard to beat staying in the same grade.

GRAYSTONE (12.45 Taunton, nb)

Was impressive when scooting in by seven lengths at Warwick last time. He loves trip and today’s race looks no tougher.

BLAKLION (2.05 Haydock, treble)

Turned back the clock when winning a decent contest here four weeks ago. He is up a fair 5lb for that and gets his ideal conditions again.
