Our Gabrial is dropped in class after stringing together a frustrating run of placed efforts. He's rated 5lb higher than Chamberlain and looks to have leading claims. Mustadrik has shown nothing so far while both Alexanor and Authorized Too were beaten out of sight in soft ground on their debuts. Aptitude is worth noting on her introduction but a chance is taken on another newcomer in CRESTA RISE as she's a half-sister to dual Polytrack winner Rhagori.
