Skater can slip clear of Gabba for Corn gold.

GABBA GABBA HEY thrilled the large crowd with his late victory in the opening round of the Accelerated Drain Cleaning Corn Cuchulainn last week, but the English raider faces a tough task in heat four of the second round at Harold's Cross tonight, writes Michael Fortune.

The likelihood is that the son of Go Wild Teddy, trained by Andrew Clarke, will be out the rear for the first half of the race and might find it beyond him to overhaul the likes of flying first round winners Group Skater and Mohane Katie.

The Kevin Commins-owned Ferdia Bound only failed by half a length to catch Group Skater last time, but he has also drawn a difficult opening heat where Hello Hippy, Droopys Moira and Black Gnat could turn this into a real thriller.

Rough Robinho is the likely winner of heat two, while Olympic Show can make up for her first round defeat by leading them home in the third..
