Horse racing: Templegate tips one to Jazz it up in Winter Derby at Lingfield & best bets at Kempton and Newcastle today

TEMPLEGATE turns his attention to another huge TV day of racing with Kempton, Lingfield and Newcastle all on the box.

Read on to find out who he thinks can bash the bookies up and down the country.

FATHER OF JAZZ (2.40 Lingfield, nap).

He earned his place in this Winter Derby with a blistering handicap win over course and distance earlier this month.

He tanked along there and picked up really well to score with plenty left in the tank.

That shows he can handle the track and Roger Varian’s hope has much more to come on just his fifth run.

THE BUTCHER SAID (3.35 Kempton, nb)

He has a lovely low weight and can improve a bundle thanks to his wind op. The last two times he’s had his breathing sorted he’s gone on to land a run of wins.

He went close on his only other run here when second in a red-hot hurdle race last spring and he’s off a similar mark here.

He went well for a long way in the Sky Bet Chase at Doncaster last month and this better ground will bring out his best.

SALTY BOY (3.15 Newcastle, treble)

He stays all day and did his best work at the end of 3m3f at Plumpton last month.

He was second in the Tommy Whittle at Haydock in December and looks tailor made for this.
