Prestige Place looks to be mob handed this Tuesday, with 2 runners at Yarmouth and 4 at Chelmsford. Wahiba and recent winner Indian Dandy head to the seaside track of Yarmouth, both look to have lively chances.We then have Power Power – the son of Power looks to have a strong chance, he was 2nd last time here and has improved in his homework. We wouldn’t be surprised to see him run a big race.
The card at Chelmsford is then to be graced by the debut of a brilliantly bred colt, the first foal out of the top-class globetrotter Mahbooba. Mabrook – a son of Dubawi trained at Prestige Place by Marco Botti for Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, whose silks Mahbooba carried with such distinction – is set to be unleashed in the mile maiden for three-year-olds in the 7.10pm.
Mahbooba, a Galileo filly bred in Australia by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa, started her career with Mike De Kock in South Africa, where she won the Group 1 Golden Slipper. She was later campaigned successfully at Meydan, where she won the UAE 1,000 Guineas, finished second in the UAE Oaks and third in the UAE Derby.
Mahbooba then travelled to Britain, where she won the Listed Godolphin Stakes by six lengths, and on to Canada, where she finished sixth in the EP Taylor Stakes.
She signed off her career back at Meydan at four, when she won the Group 2 Balanchine, ran second in the Cape Verdi and fifth in the Dubai Sheema Classic.
Mabrook – bred on the same Dubawi-Galileo cross as Night Of Thunder and Dartmouth – is Mahbooba’s first foal. Mabrook is not alone in the race – he is also joined by Borntosin and Falbon both are carrying loyal owner Mr G Manfredini silks.
