Dave Nevison's Wednesday racing tips: Zee the star at Beverley

Our pundit and resident website tipster Dave Nevison fired in 7-4 and 10-3 winners from three selections on Tuesday and has three for Wednesday's fixture on the Westwood. Enjoy all the action live on Racing TV.

Beverley is a course I have always liked to visit and have a bet at, as it tends to stage plenty of handicaps for older horses, some of which can be full of fairly exposed types. The draw is a factor I'm always looking at there too and hopefully these well-drawn runners might give us something to cheer.

3.10 Beverley: Saisons D’Or

There isn’t a runner in this field that was placed on its most recent start, so it is hardly full of in-form or progressive types, but there are plenty of factors suggesting that Saisons D’Or can go well here.

Jedd O’Keeffe is in excellent form at present (with three winners from last 10 runners before racing on Tuesday) and this seven-year-old has been running really well this season, already being a winner before disappointing last time when it is possible he was turned out too quickly.

He is well drawn in stall two and looks set to get the lead against the rail which will suit him. All surfaces come alike to him and he was a well-backed favourite last time so given a longer break here I expect another better run.

4.15 Beverley: Bavardages

This horse has taken quite a while to come down from marks in the 70s but hit form for the Easterby’s off a mark of 63 on the all weather at Southwell in March. He followed up last time out over this course and distance off a lower turf mark of 59 earlier this month and is only 2lb higher than that today.

Bavardages rattles home to win over track and trip - can he repeat the dose?

He came from pretty much last to first last time and won with a bit in hand. He is well drawn here and should get a decent tow into this race from stall two. Provided he gets a decent start, I expect him to win this comfortably.

4.48 Beverley: Mr Zee

This selection is another frontrunner who appears to have bagged a pole position draw, with the only other likely leader drawn out very wide, so hopefully he looks set to enjoy a relatively easy lead.

Mr Zee won at Leicester last season, a track by no means dissimilar to Beverley, and returned this term with a good run at the same course when beaten just over a length in a competitive race with subsequent winners both in front and behind. Marco Ghiani was on board for both wins last season and is back on for the first time since here.
