Dave Nevison's top tips for Thursday: Be Lucky at Kempton again

The Racing TV betting expert previews Thursday's action and reckons Lucky Turn and Hayley Turner can follow up their success of seven days ago.

7.30 Kempton: Busby at 5-2 with Bet365

A race full of interesting horses and seemingly significant jockey bookings, but for me the obvious claims of Busby make most appeal. A decent All-weather performer who has only ever been out of the frame once at this track, he is a model of consistency.

Despite nearly always running a race he is able to race here off a mark 2lb lower than when winning here in January.

Stall three looks ideal for him to hold a position, as the pace appears likely to come into him from the wide outside. Another good run appears almost assured.

8.00 Kempton: Lucky Turn at 5-2 with Paddy Power and Betfair

Sent off at 25-1 when giving Hayley Turner a successful return from injury at Chelmsford last week, she will be close on favourite here and rightly so.

That win came over 10 furlongs and she looked better the further she went, eventually winning going away by three lengths. She goes over a mile and a half here, which will surely suit, and provided both she and her jockey are in the same good shape, they can win again.

5.10 Southwell: Lydiate Lady at 5/1 with Bet365

This is the third time on the spin that I have put up this filly and after two exasperating seconds, hopefully she will get the job done this time.

There is no doubt she is back in top form, albeit at a lower level than she was capable of in the past. She has only one way of getting things done and it is no surprise that she has won over this unique course and distance - her course form is itself a substantial advantage. With hope, she can hang on for the last 50 yards.
