Hannon Duo Bound For Royal Ascot

North Star Boy and Magic City are set to be among Richard Hannon's juvenile team for Royal Ascot next month.

Hannon is looking forward to stepping up North Star Boy in trip following his win over five furlongs at Ascot on Saturday.

Magic City is on course for the Norfolk Stakes over the minimum trip after having a valid excuse for his defeat at Ascot last time.

Hannon revealed that the smooth Newbury debut winner has changed hands, with Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson now the majority shareholder in the son of Elusive City.

"Magic City will run at Windsor later in the month and then be prepared for the Norfolk," the Everleigh trainer told

"North Star Boy looked good, but he will look even better when he steps up to six furlongs."
