Shimano GRX 812 Sub Brake Lever SRAM compatability

I'm thinking of buying a gravel bike which has SRAM Apex 1 groupset and was wondering if the new Shimano GRX 812 Sub Brake Lever would work with this groupset. Anyone have some idea?

Thanks for that Elvo. So, would they be compatible with other Shimano groupsets? 105 for example?

You might have to be the one to try it and let us all know! Do you live in a flat area with few intersections?

I'm in Bristol. Just bought a new Ribble Gravel e-Bike and I'm very used to the cross-top levers on my Crois de Fer so wanted to make sure I could fit them on the Ribble hydraulics. In the end I opted for the GRX-600 groupset so it shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for the replies.
