Paparaazi is given the vote to land the finale at the expense of Tizzy May and Kingsholm. The selection won a similar race to this back in July and runs off a similar mark here. This looks like one of his easiest opportunity for some time and if he can recapture his best form he is sure to be in the shake up. Tizzy May is never easy to win with but in these types of races he has to be respected. He runs off a mark that he is more than capable of winning off and as a result he is one to note in the betting market. Kingsholm is another that has slipped down the weights after a long losing spell of nearly two years. He not a horse to totally rely upon but has the ability to enter the frame if returning to his best. But for the winner we return to Paparaazi.
