What shape do you think this sapphire rough will cut (clean)?

I used to go to the sapphire gem fields central QLD and nearly all rough found would yield the most by being cut oval or emerald shape. Most were too small for that and I would cut them round petal cut. Cant tell how big your piece is, but I never tried to cut ovals smaller than 6mm in their long axis.
