Benefit Of Youth showed nothing on his debut here in April and Highmead Harry was beaten out of sight at Uttoxeter recently on his first start. Newcomer Mr Blaketon makes no appeal on breeding and TORNADO IN MILAN is likely to start long odds-on for this. Evan Williams' Irish import made a very promising debut when runner-up at Wexford in October and should be opening his account in this company.
