Dave Nevison's top tips for Tuesday: Noble ready to strike at Kempton

There are three meetings live on Racing TV on Tuesday and the feature race of the season at Exeter - the Coral Haldon Gold Cup - takes centre stage at the Devon venue.

I have a selection in that Grade Two contest as well as two at Kempton Park in the evening. Best of luck.

2.10 Exeter: Dolos at 9-2 with Paddy Power and Betfair

While a handful of runners from the Paul Nicholls yard have run as though they may need a run this season, this valuable prize looks such an obvious target for Dolos who looks to break through into graded handicap company having hit what is probably the ceiling of straight handicaps with excellent wins at Sandown and Kempton last season.

All of his victories over fences have come on right-handed tracks, so Exeter is sure to suit.

Soft ground and an extended two miles will not be a hindrance either and he should get a good pace to aim at, which is also a positive.

7.10 Kempton: Busby at 11-4 with Sky Bet

Busby was very well backed having hit the cross bar for most of the summer and landed this column - and lots of others - a good touch when winning at Kempton in October.

He did it the right way as well in a handicap winning decisively, albeit narrowly, and a rise of just 2lb here should not stop him from winning again plus he is also effective over seven furlongs.

7.40 Kempton: Noble Behest at 3-1 with Sky Bet

Noble Behest dropped from a 0-80 grade to a 0-65 grade in one go last time out and was clearly relieved to be running at that level as he put up his best performance for a while to finish runner-up.

He is off the same mark here and could easily have been raised for the performance. He also has the same 7lb claimer reducing his burden of top weight.

A good gallop looks assured and that should suit him given he is usually held up and I expect him to go very close.
