There was a lot to like about GHOST PROTOCOL's debut second at Doncaster. She looked a shade green in the final stages but was only headed close home and is preferred to Freddy Q. He ran well enough when fourth at Sandown last time without improving on his earlier run at Lingfield but the selection looks to have the edge on him here. Dollar Bill and Gabrial's Gift have a bit to find on what they've shown to date if they're to match the leading contenders.
