Dual purpose performer who bolted up (4/9f) in a novices hurdle here in March (2m3.5f); back on the Flat more recently, but no match whatsoever for all the way winner Addicted To You at Chelmsford latest (2m).

Musselburgh regular in 2017 (1,1,3,1,3) over trips ranging from 1m4f to 2m; 3lb above his last winning mark but heavily eased on seasonal return at Haydock (2m) and needs to produce a career best effort back at his favoured venue.

Reliable gelding and thoroughly versatile in terms of racing surface (effective on the AW); up 3lb for a neck defeat of Stormin Tom at Ripon last month (2m), form which could be well advertised at Carlisle on Friday.

Ran a solid race in the first time blinkers here last week (1m6f), when getting to within 1¼L of Wor Lass, and following a similar path into this contest which he took in 2017 by 1½L; major player off an identical mark.

Not won since taking the 2014 Northumberland Plate and a mere shadow of that high standard nowadays, but steadily finding a groove off this reduced mark, finishing just under 4L third to Star Of The East at Chester latest (1m5f+ good).

Left Karl Burke for £12,500 at the Doncaster May sales after winning over the extended 1m4f here early last month; up in trip/4lb for stable debut, but more worrying is the significant leap in grade (Class 6 to Class 3).

Betting

Forecast

Bedrock (13/8), Great Fighter (11/4), On Fire (9/2), Angel Gabrial (13/2), Sebastian's Wish (10/1), Four Kingdoms (12/1), Tenor (12/1), Faithful Mount (20/1)

Verdict

Angel Gabrial is more than capable of putting these rivals well and truly in their place on his Northumberland Plate winning form of 2014, but many a moon has passed since with even the hallowed Gosforth Park turf long consigned to racing history. However, there's no denying that from an alluring mark he's a major player at this level. On Fire always runs his usual solid race and is also considered, but the pick is the 2017 winner GREAT FIGHTER who appears to have been trained perfectly for this early/mid season target by the ever reliable Jim Goldie and has the added bonus of a useful 5lb claimer in the saddle.
