Dandino: Kempton success
Dandino rolled back the years to take the Group 3 Betfred Mobile Sports September Stakes at Kempton.
The five-year-old was always well positioned under Jim Crowley and having been content to sit off the early pace set by Circumvent and the free-running Calvados Blues, Crowley allowed his horse to get into the race with just over two furlongs to go and he soon had his field covered.
Sagramor had to settle for his third runners-up slot on the spin having sat some way off the pace, with Modun, who won the race last year when trained by Sir Michael Stoute, held in third.
The punters came in for the Roger Varian trained, Mijhaar, but the 3-1 favourite could only finish a staying-on fourth.
Neil Callan found himself parked plenty wide enough on the turn in and the horse didn't help the rider by initially hanging left.
Fanshawe was at Haydock, where he said of Dandino: "He's been really consistent all year, but I got the ground wrong before and also the trip at times.
"He's in the Cumberland Lodge (at Ascot) and the Arc Trial (at Newbury). We will see how he is.''
