Top tipster Dave Nevison reveals his best bets for the racing action at Musselburgh and Kempton - watch how his selections fare live on Racing TV.

3.55 Musselburgh: Gennady

This horse caught the eye at Kelso a couple of starts ago behind a decent novice of Tim Vaughan’s and was then heavily backed when he returned to the same venue in a handicap and duly obliged.

He beat Monfass in that race who had tumbled in the weights but is from the Rose Dobbin yard, who are now back in top form, and for that reason I believe the performance can be upgraded and even though the handicapper has reacted with a 10lb rise in the weights, he should still be capable of winning.

7.40 Kempton: Kitaabaat

I think this one is improving gradually for David Simcock and can land a decent race here. He has not looked the greatest battler in a finish but did show a good attitude to win a match when he was the outsider of two on his penultimate start, which was encouraging.

He then stepped up considerably in trip to 14 furlongs and was certainly ridden to get the distance and did well to be third.

He steps back down to 12 furlongs here which might be his optimum trip and has been found a race that is likely to be truly run which will suit his hold-up style.

8.10 Kempton: Dyagilev

Had dropped 21lb in the handicap to qualify for a 0-50 classified stakes last time and was well backed to win a competitive event - for the grade - in decent fashion.

Hopefully the win will have given him confidence as he will not have to improve much to win this closing event under top weight.

He will be ridden by the same jockey and has a decent draw, so should go very close.
