We present an application to cosmological models in theories within the Palatini formalism of a method that combines cosmography and the explicit form of the field equations in the calculation of the redshift drift. The method yields a sequence of constraint equations which lead to limits on the parameter space of a given -model. Two particular families of -cosmologies capable of describing the current dynamics of the universe are explored here: (i) power law theories of the type , and (ii) theories of the form . The constraints on and , respectively, limit the values to intervals that are narrower than the ones previously obtained. As a byproduct, we show that when applied to General Relativity, the method yields values of the kinematic parameters with much smaller errors that those obtained directly from observations.
