DOCTOR PARKES DISAPPOINTS AFTER EARLY PROMISE AT SANDOWN

Despite a plum draw in stall two followed by a good start out of the stalls under jockey Aaron Jones at Sandown this afternoon, DOCTOR PARKES was unable to fulfil the early promise and was beaten out of the places after starting at 3/1 favoourite in the five furlong handicap.

He looked ready to swoop home from an ideal early position but did not run on when the pace quickened over the last furlong, also being squeezed for room at a crucial moment in the run-in, so had to be content with sixth place.
