Race Verdict

The form of MILLERS REEF's gritty Hereford success has been franked with the third and fourth winning since and, although a 7lb rise in the ratings is sure to make life tougher, he gets the vote to follow up. Blue Hills is sure to have plenty of supporters having won four of his last five starts, while Endeavor and first-time blinkered Clever Dick are others worthy of consideration.
