Verdict

William Haggas sent out the short-priced winner of this maiden 12 months ago and SHARAMM should follow suit. Georgia Cox tried to nurse home the Shamardal colt at Doncaster at the start of the month but the partnership was foiled by the late rally of National Army. Danny Tudhope takes over the reins today and there should be happier ending here. Diocles Of Rome was favourite at Chepstow on his reappearance but soon beaten. Newbury fifth Rock Boy Grey is more interesting and Charlie Hills’ debutant Autumn War cost 70,000gns. Gilted Princess is a half-sister to a winning miler but Kismat may need more time.
