Templegate’s racing tips: Carlisle and Southwell – Templegate’s betting preview for racing on Sunday, December 16
DON’T Um and ah about Southwell’s 1.10.
UMBRIGADO (nap) looked a cracking prospect when landing a hot Uttoxeter bumper on his debut for David Pipe last month.

They’ve wasted no time in sticking him over hurdles and I’m expecting him to be really good.
SPIDER’S BITE (1.55 Carlisle, nb) made a promising chase debut when runner-up in an Ascot handicap last month. This looks an ideal race for in-form Henry Daly’s hope.
STONEY MOUNTAIN (1.45 Southwell, treble) was a good bumper horse and he’s taken well to hurdles.
After beating useful Aye Aye Charlie at Aintree he was unfortunate to bump into another good ‘un in Doux Pretender when beaten a head at Ascot. This is much easier.
