Default Connecting two different stabilisers at the same time

What is likely to be the net effect of running an Alko hitch stabiliser at
the same time as a leaf such as bulldog? Will one "cancel" the other out or
will the effect be doubled or what?

Might put undue strain on the tow hitch and bracket. The idea is that pitch
and yaw motion is damped by a stabiliser.
The extreme would be to have the outfit 'in splints'. Putting two together
would be heading that way (maybe).

The effect would be doubled. Whether that would be beneficial would be
another matter.
