Thoughts on Solent Meads at Wolverhampton

Solent Meads runs in the 4.55 at Wolverhampton this evening. Paddy Pilley takes the ride in the extended mile handicap for apprentice handicaps. Solent Meads showed some promise in all weather maidens at the back end of his two year old career but has not really built on that promise on the turf this summer. We return him to the all weather this evening for the first time this year and if he can recapture that early promise on the surface he can get competitive in this company.

The race looks reasonable for its type and Celtic Artisan is well versed in this sphere and drops into much easier company than when finishing second last time out at Thirsk and sets the standard but any number of the others could be the one on the best of their form.
