Cheltenham Festival Wednesday Tips: Meticulous a 9/1 bet in Bumper​


Meticulous is progressing nicely and makes plenty of each-way appeal at 9/1 in the Champion Bumper (5.30)​ . ​ This Joseph O’Brien trained five-year-old was impressive when making a winning debut at Killarney last July and looks to be building up to a big performance judged on his two starts this season.​ ​ After looking ring rusty when fourth to Benruben at Leopardstown he duly came on a bundle for that outing when chasing home Envoi Allen in a Grade 2 at the same venue.​ ​ Meticulous travell3d nicely in fourth place on the heels of the leaders and kept on well without  being able to match the winner to be beaten just over a length.​ ​ Although he now meets that rival on 3lb worse terms it was an effort which suggested there was much better to come from Meticulous and that makes him look overpriced in relation to Envoi Allen.​ ​ Meticulous also services of Group 1 winning flat rider Donnacha O’Brien in the saddle, so everything points to a bold bid.​ ​

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Meticulous (9/1 Coral – BOG) ​
