Nick Shiambouros is back with two selections from the outstanding meeting at Sandown...


"Trainer Roger Charlton should have this lightly raced individual spot-on to win his first Group 1"

Back Time Test in the 15:45 at Sandown

14:00 Sandown - Jane's Memory

Jane's Memory is worth an interest in this competitive Group 3 sprint.

This filly put in a huge effort last time out when beating Ridge Ranger in a Listed event at Haydock. She took the lead inside the final furlong and pulled clear to win with a bit to spare. This was an excellent effort from this lightly raced individual. She has had setbacks in the past, but appears to have put her problems behind her.

I think she will run well at a big price, and have backed her at her current odds of 15.014/1 on the exchange.

Brando is the current favourite at 3.412/5. This Pivotal gelding finished a close second in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot last month. He ran on really well in the closing stages and was only just denied.

He must be respected.


15:45 Sandown - Time Test

Time Test is taken to win this historic race.

This Dubawi colt beat Western Hymn in the Brigadier Gerard over this course in May. He took the lead inside the final furlong and was driven out to score narrowly. I thought that was a super effort considering he had to concede 5lbs to the field.

Trainer Roger Charlton should have this lightly raced individual spot-on to win his first Group 1. He is currently trading at 4.57/2 on the exchange and I have backed him at this price.

The Gurkha is the favourite at 1.9720/21. This three-year-old finished second to the brilliant Galileo Gold in the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot last month. He ran on willingly inside the final furlong, but never had a realistic chance of catching the impressive winner.

He clearly has more to offer, but his price is extremely short and I have zero interest in backing him at this price.

My Dream Boat is worth considering. He won the Group1 Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot and comes in to this race in good order.
