Ostentation went close at Wolverhampton before finding SQUAD much too good at Kempton last time. The latter has a 6lb penalty to contend with but this is less competitive and he can go in again. Galiotto has a shout off his current mark and C&D winner Six Of Clubs has claims with an apprentice's allowance helping his cause. Marmas should be capable of better and makes most appeal of the remainder.
