Dave Nevison's top tips for Saturday: Bank on Burrows Edge

Our betting expert Dave Nevison went close in the Gold Cup with Anibale Fly, who he suggested backing each-way at 25-1, and has three top tips for Saturday's racing.

2.40 Kempton: Burrows Edge

Burrows Edge reappeared after an 11-month absence at this track in February and absolutely had to win to get a run at the Festival.

It just looked as though he blew up in the home straight but he got his second wind approaching the last and stayed on all the way to the line finishing a highly respectable second in a competitive race.

Getting raised only 2lb is obviously beneficial for this race, which is framed for horses who do not make the cut in the Festival handicaps. He looks a banker to my eyes.

2.50 Fontwell: Shapiro

Fields are disappointingly small this weekend but it might give an opportunity for Rex Dingle to have a couple of winners on a modest Fontwell card.

This mare has had four runs in bumpers and was gradually improving in the first three before blowing out on her latest start almost a year ago to the day.

She returns from that absence with her trainer Anthony Honeyball in absolutely blinding form and this is a weak heat.

I will be looking for a market positive but am taking her to open her account first time over hurdles.

3.15 Kempton: El Terremoto

El Terremoto has had quite a mixed start to his chasing career with good runs alongside two falls both of which could well have been wins had he stood up.

I thought he had a tremendous chance to make amends at Kelso last time but the shorter trip looked to find him out and he was narrowly beaten.

This trip should suit him admirably and goodish ground is no issue.
