Boxing Day racing tips: NAPS for today's racing as Matt Chapman and Templegate go head-to-head at Kempton and Wetherby in a Festive special

Matt and Steve both drew blanks over the weekend but should bounce back on a stellar day of racing.

It was a punters nightmare on Saturday as Chti Balko faded out of things for Chappers at Haydock.

Those in the Templegate camp also were out of pocket as Magic Saint ran into a mighty run from Hell's Kitchen.

As the competition draws to a close over the festive period, it's all to play for with Chappers remaining in profit and Steve needing a winner to pull it back.

Game on.

Standings after Week 13 (to a £1 stake)

There's no doubt my nap is SANTINI, who looked super well when I saw him at the Nicky Henderson yard last week.

He's taken to fences in style and completely outclassed a horse of Kim Bailey's last time out who then went on to win a Grade 2.

The yard have always said he'd be the real deal over the larger obstacles so it's quite impressive that he managed to win a Grade 1 as a hurdler.

Now he can be a Grade 1 chaser….Yeeehaaa with bells on!
