12/1 Meridius worth a wager at Wolves

Meridius is on a handy mark on the pick of his form in the 4.30 at Wolverhampton today and looks overpriced at 12/1.

The colt was well beaten in a Newmarket maiden on hos sole start as a juvenile when trained by Jeremy Noseda but showed improved form on his first start this season for Gary Harrison when beaten just a short-head by Ian’s Dream in a 6f maiden on the all-weather at Lingfield.

He made the 95-rated winner pull out all the stops and looked the likely winner until being unable to quicken near the finish and the pair pulled 4 1/2 lengths clear of the third.

The son of Invincible Spirit thne didn’t run too badly on the turf at Windsor when 5th of 11 to Oasis Spirit before running a cracker to be beaten 2 1/2 lengths by Sedenoo on his handicap debut over 6f at Nottingham off a mark of 70.

He kept on well that day to be beaten 2 1/2 lengths and the winner (whom he was meeting on level weights) followed-up off a mark of 76 before finishing second off 81 on his latest start.

The pair also finsihed 4 1/2 lengths clear of the third Rock Up who scored at Bath yesterday by 5 lengths to give the form a solid look.

Although the selection was then not at his best last time out at Lingfield things didn’t go according to plan and he looks well worth another chance to confirm his earlier promise now upped in trip to 7f for the first time.

On his runs behind Ian’s Dream and Sedenoo he looks well-treated off a mark of 72, and with Jimmy Quinn in the saddle a big run looks on the cards in a race which should be run to suit.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Meridius (12/1 bet365, Betfred, BetVictor – BOG)
