Dave Nevison's top tips for Thursday: Dawn can rise to the occasion

After a couple of days of pretty moderate racing, Salisbury provides Group Three racing for us to get stuck into and I have two selections there, including one in the feature contest, plus one at Beverley. Best of luck.

3.20 Salisbury: Chetan (at 6-1 with Bet365)

I am going to give this one another chance to win a race off a good mark after he narrowly failed to land me a reasonable punt last time out.

Salisbury is not too dissimilar to Leicester where he ran really well and traded at odds-on in running last time, plus he gets the benefit of Richard Kingscote in the saddle here.

Chetan is most often seen running consistently on the All-weather but has been running well enough on his turf starts to suggest a rating of 60 makes him a well handicapped horse and hopefully he will be able to sit just off what looks likely to be a good pace.

3.50 Salisbury: Mojito (at 5-1 with Betfair)


4.30 Beverley: Alfa Dawn each-way (at 9-1 with Betfair, paying four places at 1/5 odds)

This filly has shown enough in three starts for Philip Makin to suggest she will win a race and there is enough in her favour here to provide a real opportunity for a good run.

The latest two efforts seem to have stretched her stamina too much, especially as she seemed to be in the thick of things throughout at Redcar last time.

A drop back in trip to a mile looks set to suit and hopefully positive tactics - which work well over this trip at Beverley - will be maintained having bagged stall one.

The draw may be even more beneficial with habitual slow starter My Boy Lewis in stall 2 and Dark Poter, having its first run for Ruth Carr after an absence, in stall 3.

Alfa Dawn has dropped to a mark of 66 for her latest effort and definitely has a chance at a price in this grade.
