Verdict

MILLBANK FLYER sets the bar quite high on the form of his debut Hereford second so Harry Fry's son of Milan looks the one to focus on with improvement very much in the pipeline over this longer trip. Winning- pointer Stellar Magic is much respected for his leading yard on his hurdling bow, while Equus Dreamer is another debutant who has shown up well in points and needs considering.
