Dave Nevison's top tips for Friday: Touchdown at Catterick with Dallas Cowboy

Dave Nevison has four fancies for Friday - including three at Catterick, which you can watch live on Racing TV.

12.15 Catterick: The Drone

Harry Reed is a conditional jockey who is taking the eye this season and although he does not claim from The Drone in this handicap the combination look to have a big chance.

The Drone is not giving away much weight to his main rivals and if he converts his recent chase form to hurdles he can go close.

The extended three-mile trip will definitely suit and his trainer, Alex Hales, is in good form.

12.45 Catterick: Dallas Cowboy

Dallas Cowby goes close at market rasen on his penultimate start

Paula Smith has few horses to run but this horse has performed with credit on his three runs for the stable this season.

Jockey Emma Smith Chayton is not a household name but rode a blinder to win the four-mile handicap at Hexham this week and has ridden two winners from her past four rides, so is probably deserves more opportunities.

She rides this horse from the front and Catterick could suit very well.

2.40 Ascot: Sky Pirate

Had this one stood up last time, at Wetherby, he would most likely be running off a higher mark than 132 as he was travelling strongly and set to go close.

That race was over 2½ miles on heavy ground, so was a tough ask for his reappearance.

The test on Friday will be ideal for him and, provided he is over that tumble, I expect him to go well over this slightly extended trip and prove himself a handicapper to follow.

3.00 Catterick: Very First Time

Is a pretty obvious selection, but we were on Very First Time last time when it was backed like a certainty and won in style.

Dan Skelton looks to have planned a sequence for him and this race comes on the last day he could win under a penalty.

Despite the extra 7lb he is still off bottom weight here and should score again.
