Dave Nevison's top tips for Thursday: Coming to cause storm at Epsom

Racing TV's betting expert believes he has found a "handicap good thing" at Epsom, one of three meetings live on Racing TV on Thursday.

2.10 Doncaster: Company Minx each-way at 13-2 with William Hill who are paying four places

Clive cox has been very profitable to follow in nurseries over the past few years and has a very likely-looking type here.

Company Minx has improved with each run and certainly looked as though further progress was on the horizon last time out.

Winners have come out of both her maiden win at Lingfield and her close second to an expensive purchase at Windsor. She carried a penalty on that occasion and looked as though this extra half furlong would suit.

Hector Crouch is a jockey in good form who has thrived since losing his claim and Clive Cox's team is also in really good order. A decent pace is guaranteed which should also suit.

2.15 Epsom: Thechildren'strust at 5-2 with Bet365

The market certainly predicted this one’s return to form last time out and he duly obliged in very good style.

That was an apprentice event, so he escapes a penalty against some very exposed types. Gary Moore’s four-year-old had become very well handicapped having dropped 11lb since his opening mark.

He has been placed off a rating of 81 so the handicapper was not too wide of the mark, but he looks very well-in off 70 here.

Having won at Goodwood, Epsom's undulations should not be a hindrance to him and he is clearly a handicap good thing. Hopefully he will confirm that here.

3.55 Epsom: Big Storm Coming at 100-30 with Coral

This nine-year-old is a standing dish at Epsom and has won twice at the course already this season.

He has had a short break since a slightly disappointing run last time out but returns here with his trainer in excellent form and can pick up the winning thread under top weight.

His jockey, Cieren Fallon, has ridden him to both victories at the track and has ridden four winners from just 15 rides at Epsom, so is clearly taking after his dad, who was absolutely brilliant at this course.

He is currently clear of Sean Davis in the apprentice title and no jockey will be more focused.

Big Storm Coming is 9lb higher than when successful in July but that is still 1lb lower than the mark he won off at Newmarket last season so does not look overburdened.

5.05 Epsom: Restless Rose at a general 4-1

Has been ready to win for a while and probably should have done so at Chelmsford last time out as she was on the slowest side of the track and raced too freely before being denied by a neck.

She last won off 75 and is 1lb lower here - she could well have been raised for her latest good effort.
