Next Stop The Moon (red, black and white colours) reappears one week after placing third in a high-rating race for a Class One handicap

Punting Form race reports: Wednesday 31 July

Next Stop The Moon backs up quickly from placing third in a high-rating Class One affair seven days ago and, according to Punting Form's numbers, he looks hard to beat in Wednesday's Christmas At Ascot Handicap at Belmont Park.

Punting Form rated Next Stop The Moon's performance behind Uni Time and Point Taken 5.3 lengths better than its class benchmark figure and he should relish stepping up to 1,400 metres because he posted the fastest last 200m split of last week's 1,200m event. Next Stop The Moon has led each of the three races he has contested over distances greater than 1,200m so expect Jarrad Noske to be positive aboard the unexposed Daniel and Ben Pearce-trained five-year-old gelding, which did not make his debut until two weeks before last Christmas.
