Market rival Bartzella was incredibly disappointing when turned over at extremely short odds last time out so it could pay to side with Andrew Balding’s colt instead.

Andrew Balding - Glorious Goodwood
Andrew Balding has four runners at Ascot on Friday afternoon

The form of his Newmarket debut back in April has stood up across the remainder of the campaign and the step up in trip can unlock the improvement to get his head in front.

Representing a yard that have already surpassed their tallies from the last four seasons, the stable has been one to follow in 2021 and they can add another to that record here.

NB: MANDOOB | 3:05pm Harrogate Water B Corp Noel Murless Stakes (Listed)

The Bahrain Trophy Stakes form has been franked with great substance and the Brian Meehan trained gelding looks to have a cracking chance back down in grade.

Jim Crowley rides Mandoob for the second time

He finished second that day, behind the subsequent Voltiguer Stakes victor and ahead of the March Stakes hero.

Far less exposed than most of these, he should have more to offer in this sphere and there is still improvement to come.
