Recent form lines suggest GABRIAL THE GREAT, who has landed the odds in his last two starts in a canter, should be capable of giving 7lb to Stratford scorer Alphabetical Order. Donald McCain's charge is fitted with a hood today just to keep his mind on the job. Unless something happens to the top two, the other pair are likely to be playing for place money.
