4.0.2 is loading saved stories oldest first - even when the view is set to newest first. can this be fixed?

I have over 4000 saved stories. When I try to access them on the app - it starts loading them (very slowly) from the oldest to the newest.
My view is set to newest, because I’m usually looking for the articles I saved in the last few days. The view never gets there.
So, when the view is set to ‘Newest’, can the articles be cached in reverse order instead?
