Well-treated Medici Time worth an each-way wager at 12s

Medici Time has become dangerously well-treated and makes plenty of each-way appeal at 12/1 in the 4.15 at Hamilton today now dropped back down in trip.

The nine-year-old is on a long losing run, having not scored since landing a class 4 contest at Newmarket back in August 2012 off a mark of 78.

He got put up 6lb to 84 for that success, and largely struggled for much of last season.

His best run came when a 1/2 length second of 10 to Head Space at Redcar off 73, and although he then failed to build on that in five subsequent starts he didn’t run too badly in the last two and has continued to fall in the weights.

Tim Easterby’s charge now gets into this off a mark of just 64 – his lowest since winning off it back in August 2009 – and is 14lb lower than when registering his last success.

It gives him major claims at the weights, and prior to disapppoiting last time out over 6f at Doncaster had run well on his previous two starts.

In the first of those, Medici Time showed plenty of pace to chase the leaders after a slowly start and travelled strongly before being unable to find any extra a ufrlong from home and weakening to finish fifth of 11 to Mandalay King over 6f at this venue.

He then ran well next time up over 5f at Ripon, keeping on at the death to finish a 2 3/4 length sixth of 12 to Adan’s Ale.

Those runs showed that he retains enough ability to win a race of this nature, and he now has his optimum conditions.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Medici Time (12/1 bet365, Hills – BOG)
