2.20 Musselburgh – Gabrial The Wire – WON 3/1

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.

Notebook Comments:
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.
