A little rain overnight at the course, but the going is reported as good and Gabrial The Wire seemed to handle a little cut well enough at Ascot last time. Perhaps a career best when 5th in the Silver Wokingham from an unfavourable draw. Whilst the top weight has to be respected off a decent handicap mark, Gabrial Wire has plenty more improvement to come and is taken to back up his Ascot run and land the prize here.
Royal Ascot, Saturday, Gabrial The Wire,
Probably put up a career best in finishing 5th here considering he was racing away from the favoured stands rail, which the first 4 all had the advantage of. He’s quite a tall leggy horse who still has a good deal of strengthening and improvement to come; and having already proven himself over 7 furlongs will have plenty of options as the season progresses.
