Racing tips: Templegate NAPS well-handicapped runner over best trip at Chepstow for top trainer Dan Skelton

TEMPLEGATE looks to kick off a big week of racing with a few winners on Monday.

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!

We've also got some tips for the top class racing at Punchestown for you too.

WEST TO THE BRIDGE (2.35 Chepstow, nap)

He has had a tickle down the weights despite going nicely at Exeter. This looks a very winnable race over his best trip and he can strike for the Skeltons.

DESERT LIME (5.30 Wolverhampton, nb)

She was a close-up second here last time and returns from the same handicap mark. She likes this trip and will be right in the mix.

EDEN DU HOUX (2.00 Chepstow, treble)

He enjoyed dropping in class to strike at Ffos Las in similar testing conditions to today. This longer trip holds no fears and he can score again.
