Sandown Tip: Orlaith

Rapid improver over 5f for Iain Jardine but then found 6f on soft ground beyond her. First start for Clive Cox and back to 5f will suit. Has the beating of Al Raya on Newbury form.

There don’t appear to be any superstars in the 2.40 Sandown but Orlaith is better than her price suggests. She was a rapid improver for Iain Jardine last season until the autumn when she found 6f on soft ground a stretch too far. On her last start at Newmarket she was still travelling strongly with a furlong to go and a step back in trip is in her favour.

She beat Al Raya fair and square at Newbury last August and there is no obvious reason why the form will be reversed. On that run alone she should be a shorter price.

1pt Orlaith to win 11/1 with William Hill
