It's contained in Chessbase magazine no.1 - way back in 1988 but it's not a full survey just one game but with John Nunn's comments that 5bg5 led to only the slightest advantage to white (whether you agree is another matter since the game he quotes is 5..be7 6 ed nd5 7 be7 qe7 8 qd2 qb4- Giplsis v Russek) and his conclusion that 4 e5 is the way he is gradually being convinced 4 e5 is the way to meet 3..nc6.  6ne2 is also very briefly mentioned but it's not very illuminating- if you have Watson's book you will have what you need to refute khalifman's ideas in his anand book.

Andrew,
Can you point which chessbase magazine discussed HR Fench? I play this variation and am interested to see what is John's opinion.

4 e5 - has anyone looked at John Watson's recommendation in the Dangerous weapons series. He goes for f6, bd7, qe7-f7 maneouvres.

Isn't 4.. Nge7 a major alternative.

John Nunn in Chessbase magazine no.1 said 4 e5 is the best move- I totally agree

I am a little lazy (coming back to chess after holidays) but
- Qd7 is less flexible than Bd7 (as RandomPatzer post above) or more precisely: loose time for developing queenside wing soon
- with the queen on d7, White can choose immediatly to play exf6 as Black has already hindered his development: 4...f6 5.Bb5 Qd7 6.exf6! Nxf6 (6...gxf6 7.Qh5+ and Black has difficult play  with double pawns or king stick in center) 7.Nf3 with a serious strong point on e5 square  for White and Black cannot play a6 anymore to unpin Nc6

My first thoughts are this is just going to be much less flexible than 5...Bd7, after which black can play ...a6, ...Qe7-f7 & transpose to your set up. Or, as he may well want to, leave out ...a6 or delay/omit Qe7/Qf7.

Is there some specific Qh5+ idea which is bad for black after Bd7?

After 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nc6 4.e5 Wisnewski doesn't like 4..f6 due to 5.Bb5 saying Black's best is 5..Bd7 and isn't satisfied with Black. Here is a crazy idea I have come up with: 5..Qd7!? instead. This diffuses Qh5+ ideas because Black simply plays Qf7 and seems OK. The other idea is to play a6, Qf7, Bd7 and OOO at some point. If White plays ef6, gf6 follows with an open g file.

Some examples:

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nc6 4.e5 f6 5.Bb5 Qd7 6.f4 a6 7.Be2 (7.Bc6 Qc6 looks good for Black) 7..Nh6!?

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nc6 4.e5 f6 5.Bb5 Qd7 6.Nf3 a6 7.Bd3 Qf7 8.OO Bd7 9.Bf4 g5!? 10.Bg3 g4 11.Nd2 fe 12.de Nh6!?

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nc6 4.e5 f6 5.Bb5 Qd7 6.Nf3 a6 7.Bd3 Qf7 8.OO Bd7 9.ef gf 10.Bf4 OOO (or 10..Bd6!? first)

Stupid?
