Sandown Tip: Railport Dolly
Favourite scrambled home after getting run of race last time and wasn't particularly impressive. Railport Dolly ran well over inadequate 7f and will enjoy step up in trip.
Fondest is a short price in the last at Sandown and i’m happy to oppose on her last run. A combination of the Cheveley Park silks and a win next to her name has her favourite in a 13-runner race but her win was nothing special. She scrambled home having sat in the box-seat in a race run at a modest gallop. The time wasn’t particularly fast and even after sectional adjustments she only gets a speed rating of 40.
A more attractive proposition is Railport Dolly. Mick Appleby doesn’t have many runners at Sandown but he’s found a good race for his filly. Last time she struggled to go the early pace over 7f but she stuck to her task well and was staying on again at the finish. Her sectional suggest, combined with visual impression suggest she’ll be suited by going up in trip and strong pace over 1m1f is in her favour. She’s not got much weight to carry but could be ahead of her mark.
