Unbeaten gelding Callanish takes another step up in the hope of an imminent graduation to Saturday company in the Cove Hotel Handicap (1600m) at Sandown on Wednesday.
Callanish has won impressively at each of his five starts leaving trainer Mick Price with the pleasant dilemma of wondering where to go next.
"He was a on a dead track, stepping up to the mile and carrying 59 kg last start, so it was a good effort" Price said.
"He's a nice horse, he'll train on, so we'll look at a bit of black type maybe."
Despite bad barrier manners in his first preparation, Callanish put two wins on the board, squeezing two barrier trial successes in between them.
Price sent him back to the races in July and he struck two of the heaviest tracks to be presented for city meetings at Sandown and scored more impressively each time.
Two weeks ago he did the same on top of the ground beating Eleuther, who he meets again on Wednesday, with comparative ease.
Callanish carried 59kg in a rating 82 event that day and is up 1kg in a rating 89 this time and is giving Eleuther 6kg.
But that hardly seems enough to cause a different result and the $320,0000 purchase from the 2010 New Zealand Premier Yearling Sale should cut out another piece of that price.
Callanish, a son of the sire-of-the-moment Fastnet Rock, is a half-brother to the Group Three winner Dancing Daggers and is from the family of Group One winners Blevic, Universal Prince and Universal Queen.
