Verdict

The veteran and very versatile Callisto Moon gained the 15th success of his long career at Bath last month and very nearly followed up over hurdles at Towcester. Presto Volante hasn't had too much racing for his age but gained his third success and made a winning debut on Polytrack at Lingfield. He stays well and looks certain to be in the shake-up but ABUNDANTLY appears well enough treated and has always looked as though this trip would suit. He stayed on strongly when just failing to catch Jupiter Storm over 1m4f at Chepstow and can go one better. Rockfella was in winning form at this time a year ago and reappeared after a long break with a very good run over 2m at Goodwood so he has to be considered as does The Quarterjack, a close second on his first start over this trip at Salisbury.
