There was a nice double at Doncaster for Dr Marwan Koukash. Gabrial The Wire won nicely under Paul Hanagan to get things started. He was held up towards the rear and was pushed for an effort two furlongs from home. He hit the front inside the final furlong and stayed on to win by a length-and-three-quarters.

Brian The Snail got his head back in front and we’re hoping for a good season. He was always in contention and showed a good attitude to battle to the front. Once he was there he pulled clear to win by a length-and-a-quarter.
