Well Bred Son Of Milan Makes A Perfect Start

The future looks bright for Kopa Kilana (4g Milan - Kophinou, by Mansonnien), who made a winning debut in Saturday’s bumper at Musselburgh, to complete a five-timer for Brian Hughes.

Racing towards the back of the field, the Rebecca Menzies-trained bay improved to lead from two furlongs out and was ridden approaching the final furlong. Running on well, he prevailed by a length on the line.

Owned by John Wade, the son of Milan was bred by R Bryan out of a half-sister to Ma Filleule.
