Mezel was easy to back on his debut at Kempton and was very green. He may need more time while Ripon fourth Sakhalin Star is only making slow progress so we'll concentrate on the newcomers. Free Code is a full brother to juvenile winner Bear Behind and is entitled to respect but the vote goes to DESERT COLOURS. By Exceed And Excel, he cost 54,000gns and this is a good starting-off point. Tez, another son of Exceed And Excel, can also figure and is preferred to the filly Elsie Bond of the others.
