Verdict

This looks a tightly-nit handicap so our preference for OSTENTATION ahead of Paintball and Wedding Party is marginal. Mark Johnston's gelding may well be flattered by a literal reading of his latest form, when too good for Rock A Doodle Doo. That one has since won twice so on the face of it our selection remains well treated up 9lbs, but caution is advised as this son of Dubawi very much got the run of the race that day. He should act at Southwell on breeding though and his prominent racing style is suited to the track, so he gets the vote from Paintball who carries top weight. Willy Muir's colt ran well enough here on debut when well backed and his victory at the track over seven furlongs last time confirmed the feeling he likes the Fibresand. A mile shouldn't be a problem and it'll be interesting to see how he goes in the betting in relation to our pick, whose yard has a couple of lines of form with this one to go on. Wedding Dream looks up against it at the weights but she's two from two over course and distance, so with Amy Ryan's claim helping even things out she can go well. Lily Lily would be of interest but she's declared to run at Wolverhampton on Monday and her chance will depend on whether she takes up that engagement and indeed how she fares, so at this stage we prefer Barlaman of the remainder. Clive Brittain's colt should be suited by stepping up in trip and taking to Fibresand for the first time and needs watching closely, along with House Red who ran a promising sort close last time out. Mororless won well here on debut but hasn't gone on from it, so we'll return to Ostentation to land this competitive finale.
