GABRIAL'S KING never looks as though he's putting it all in and was beaten by Luctor Emergo over the C&D on Thursday. However, the winner's penalty and the champion jockey can galvanise Ian Williams' charge into action and he's taken to reverse the form and gain his second victory on the track. He had earlier been touched off by Complex and is no better off but the latter was only third in a seller here last time. Speedi Mouse won a Yarmouth seller last July and was just beaten at Newmarket. She will have needed her recent run at Kempton and wouldn't need much improvement to take this.
