Default Entering a competition. 60 Shiling or 70 Shilling?

So, I made a scottish ale. OG was 1.034 so I was thinking I'd enter it as a 60 shilling. However at bottling I found the FG to have settled at 1.014 (Probably fermented a bit too cool.)

So my FG was a point to high to be a 60 shilling and my OG was a point low to be a 70 so where would you enter it?

I'm thinking that I'll enter it as a 70. The beer tasted very good at bottling nice malt charecter and not too sweet. I think the higher final gravity leaves this beer with a bit more malt charecter then a 60 would have.

Thoughts? P.S. I know I'm splitting hairs here.

I'd enter it into the 70 personally. I'd rather undershoot an OG for the BJCP Style Guidelines than overshoot. Call it a 69 Shilling
