Friday's Racing tips: Kettle Hill can bounce back

With five winners from six selections so far this week, Racing TV tipster Dave Nevison bids to extend his hot run with three selections from the Sky Bet Go Racing In Yorkshire Summer Festival, all live on Racing TV.

2.50 Thirsk: Ingleby Hollow

At the peak of his form at present and was presumably targeted at last weekend’s valuable Summer Hurdle at Market Rasen where he finished fifth but was arguably unlucky not to win, having not got a clear run when he needed it.

Previous to that he had scored in a modest amateurs' handicap at Doncaster on the Flat, showing that he does get this trip well nowadays. He is only 3lb higher after winning that race but has won at this course in the past off a mark of 72, so if he is still in the same form as his last run he could be very well handicapped.

4.00 Thirsk: Iris Dancer

She left the impression that she was going to win races for his new yard when second last week to the solid Soul Seeker and off a 3lb lower mark has a real chance in this modest sprint.

Tristan Davidson has already done us one favour this week and has his string in pretty good form. He is showing himself a trainer very adept at improving horses from other yards (and backing them to do so) and I would be surprised if Iris Dancer is not well supported in the markets again here. She has run well on soft ground off higher marks if the weather changes.

8.00 York: Kettle Hill

Undoubtedly the interesting one in this line-up, coming back a couple of months after disappointing at odds-on last time. He beat a next-time-out winner in decent style when winning his maiden in good style last season and then impressed on his reappearance this year when winning at Wolverhampton, once more looking the part and beating a decent field for the grade.

He was undeniably very disappointing at Redcar, but trainer William Haggas regularly has good winners at this track and the market will no doubt go some way in informing us as to what is expected here. He made such a good impression on his two wins it seems likely he will prove better than this grade and the booking of Tom Marquand is hardly a negative.
