Timeform Daily: Sandown Mile, Friday, 14:20

Sandown is the venue for Friday's race of the day

Timeform run the rule over the runners for the Group 2 Sandown Mile...

Penitent looked better than ever when making a winning return on debut for this yard...

Dubawi Gold was no match for Frankel in 2000 Guineas but unlucky not to land the Irish equivalent. Improved subsequently, and can be expected to leave reappearance effort behind.

Famous Name is a popular 7-y-o with an excellent strike rate, recording 15th success of career when landing listed event at Leopardstown on return recently. Ground no problem and bold bid expected.

Libranno is a front runner who won a couple of times at Group 3 level last year. Testing going at this trip likely to find him out on reappearance, though.

Penitent is a former Lincoln winner who bounced back to his very best when making winning start for this yard in listed race at Doncaster earlier this month. C&D winner and not without a chance.

Questioning has acquitted himself well on numerous occasions, building on his runner-up to Penitent on return when just denying Twice Over in Group 3 at Newmarket last week. Claims if over that already.

Side Glance progressed again in 2011, adding to a brace of listed wins when taking Group 3 at Salisbury in August. Shaped as though needing run on return but unproven on going this testing.

Cochabamba was group placed at 2 yrs after winning maiden on debut, but not fired so far this term and looks firmly up against it in this company.

Timeform 1-2-3:
1. Penitent
2. Famous Name
3. Dubawi Gold

Timeform View: Penitent looked better than ever when making a winning return on debut for this yard at Doncaster 4 weeks ago and looks sure to make a bold bid to follow that up with conditions in his favour. The prolific Famous Name and classy Dubawi Gold look the main dangers in what is a competive Group 2.
