Verdict

FREE CODE attracted very good support on his debut at Doncaster but found Sir Michael Stoute's Mezel just too strong. The remainder were well beaten and compensation awaits. Desert Colours was well behind and looks held so the main threat may emerge from Gay Kelleway's newcomer Danzki, who is the tenth foal of a mare who has already produced seven winners.
