One Kool Dude has some decent form in the spring but recent efforts have lacked sparkle and he's now had 10 attempts to get his head in front. He'll struggle to concede weight here to Peter Makin's filly BLANC DE CHINE, who only went down by a short-head in a Windsor nursery nine days ago having also filled the runner-up spot behind Beau Mistral over this C&D in August. Code Six is interesting as she was far from disgraced on her debut at Beverley, despite running green, while Smacker should improve on his first run at Newbury. Dancheur is a half-sister to a couple of winners and may prove best of the newcomers.
