We statistically validated a sample of hot Neptune candidates applying a two-step vetting technique using dave and triceratops. We performed a systematic validation of 250 transit-like events in the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite archive in the parameter region defined by P≤4d and 3R⊕≤R≤5R⊕⁠. Through our analysis, we identified 18 hot Neptune-sized candidates, with a false positive probability
