A TT bike would be noticeably faster, but you'll be absolutely fine on a gravel bike, particularly if you install clip on aero bars and road bike tires. The only thing stopping you will be making the cutoff time.

If it were me, I'd put on some 25mm GP4000 or GP5000 road tires for the event.

I have a gravel bike also (Topstone aluminum) on 37mm tires (Gravel King slicks) and really enjoy riding it on the road. I say go for it.
