Horse racing tips: Red-hot Templegate NAPS William Buick's big ride in the Boodles May Festival at Chester

TEMPLEGATE has been banging in the winners left, right and centre lately.

And he's confident of landing a few more on Wednesday as the Boodles festival kicks off at Chester. Read on to find out his top tips.

WIRKO (3.15 Chester, nap)

He looked a nice prospect when winning an Epsom Listed contest on comeback last month. He improved as the 1m2f went on so this longer trip should be ideal. Handling that tricky track bodes well for Chester’s roller-coaster ride.

DUBAI FOUNTAIN (2.15 Chester, nb)

She signed off last season with a close-up fourth in the Group 1 Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket. That’s much the best form in this field and she’s bred to stay this far even with cut in the ground.

UNCLE JUMBO (3.45 Chester, treble)

He likes to front-run and has the perfect low draw to pull off those tactics. He ran well after a break at Pontefract last time and Kevin Ryan has started the season well.
