Volcanic Jack won at Bath the last time Kieren Fallon was on board but he's 8lb higher today and unproven over the distance. Reggie Perrin also steps up in trip though has a chance on his best efforts over shorter but it's OSTENTATION that makes most appeal. He went close when third to dual winner Porcini over the extended 2m at Wolverhampton last time with subsequent winner Blue Dune in second and that form should be good enough to land this. Rodrigo De Freitas and Oneiric could prove best of the rest.
