Verdict

Sharaarah was well beaten on Turf before scoring on the Fibresand at Southwell and is worth taking on off a 7lb higher mark today. Antonio Gramsci is up 5lb for his recent victory at Ripon but is steadily improving and should confirm running with Tatlisu. RED REFRACTION looked to be treading water in handicaps before a better effort at Haydock last time and Richard Hannon's colt gets the tentative vote to come out best in this, though Boxing Shadows has a shout with a repeat of his second at Beverley but has to be forgiven a poor effort at Nottingham on his latest start.
