Newsboy’s Sunday racing tips for Chepstow, Kempton, Leopardstown

SPRINGFIELD FOX is tipped to win the annual battle of the mudlarks in the Coral Welsh Grand National (2.50, NAP) at Chepstow.

Tom George has targeted the thorough stayer at the race for some time – and he warmed up for it at the track 22 days ago.

Both of the selection's wins have come on heavy ground, including a novices' handicap chase there in January.

He made all the running that day, tactics which often pay off in a race like this.

Only a seven-year-old, there is more improvement to come and he is nicely weighted for jockey James Bowen.

Earlier on the card, MOONLIGHTER can take the Watch Racing For Free At Coral Handicap Chase (1.05, NB) for Nick Williams and Tom Scudamore.

He gave Greaneteen a real race in the Haldon Gold Cup and that rival went on to perform with credit in Grade 1 company.

A mark of 147 looks good considering Paul Nicholls' charge has been upped to 161.
