Dennis Coakley's juveniles are usually worth a second look here but Monsieur Blanc will have to improve markedly for the fitting of a visor to take a hand in the finish. FLICKSTA sets the standard on his placed efforts here and at Lingfield and, well drawn, can make it third-time lucky. Kopenhagen and Jacob Black are both speedily bred and appear the pick of the newcomers while Douneedahand looks best of the rest.
