Red Orator made a promising reappearance at Wolverhampton and last year's Ascot success has worked out well. He can't be ignored while Callisto Moon has won twice over course and distance off higher mark, though his stable isn't really firing at present and he lacks a recent run. Capellanus stays well and has been knocking on the door on Polytrack while Petaluma will strip fitter for her run at Newbury, though might prefer a slightly easier surface. SUNNY FUTURE beat Callisto Moon here last August and clearly found 1m5f on his reappearance an insufficient test of stamina. That should have set him up nicely for this and he won't be far away.
