Racing tips: Templegate NAPS this Michael Easterby runner who's primed to strike at Musselburgh on Monday

YEAH, yeah it's Christmas this week… but it's the King George on Boxing Day.

Our top tipster Templegate aims to spread some festive cheer with a look at Monday's action as we build towards the big day.

ENLIGHTEN (2.15 Musselburgh, nap)

He stayed on really well when third over two miles at Sedgefield last time.

This longer trip will be ideal and Michael and David Easterby have been firing in winners galore.

RAPID RAIDER (2.45 Musselburgh, nb)

He can land a hat-trick after smooth successes at Bangor and Ayr. This longer trip holds no fears and he stays in the same grade.

LEROY BROWN (5.00 Wolverhampton, treble)

He is lightly raced on the level and went close despite trouble in running at Lingfield latest. He drops into selling company with every chance.
