It is feasible that the very expensive Mendellsohn will show a high level of progress from his first run. He may pose a threat to Swiss Cottage who attempts to build on an encouraging debut here six days ago, in a race won by the team now represented by Andesh, whose chance has to be taken seriously.

Top-notch pedigree, $3,000,000 yearling, half-brother to five winners, including top class mare Beholder, winner of 18 of her 26 races; made low-key debut in maiden at this venue in which the trainer supplied the winner and the third; winner had been beaten almost 20l on debut, illustrating the improvement Ballydole's juveniles can make from a first run.

Entered in the Futurity Stakes and National Stakes and probably needs to win here if he is to take up either engagement; interesting that his in-form trainer sends him into action again only six days after a promising debut fifth in a maiden won by a stablemate of Andesh; left a definite impression he would improve from the run.

Lost action on Gowran debut when tailed off; never involved at Galway on second attempt stable is in good form, but massive improvement is required.
