Verdict

his looks a straightforward opportunity for GABRIAL THE KING to improve on a satisfactory first appearance at Pontefract last month over the minimum trip. That appeared an inadequate test but the Michael Bell inmate is clearly held in some regard as he was supported into favouritism that day and should relish the move to six furlongs here. Welsh Royale and Tweet Lady will need to improve significantly on achievements to date to threaten, so check the market with regard to the newcomers, of which David Evans 25,000euro purchase, Knocker Knowles, a son of Refuse To Bend, reads as the most likely on paper.
