Three of these sport owner Marwan Koukash's colours. Gabrial The Duke has shown nothing so far but Gabrial The Master went close on his debut at Chester and should figure. The latter's stablemate has been saddled with the less auspicious name of Gabrial The Thug, but he too ran well at Chester on his introduction and has a shout. However, ENNISTOWN wasn't beaten far when sixth in a better maiden than this at Doncaster last time and despite showing signs of temperament, the Godolphin colt gets the nod to open his account. Khelac was well beaten in heavy ground last time and the newcomers make little appeal.
