The betting suggested PITON would make a winning reappearance at Wolverhampton and he duly landed the odds by 12 lengths. It's unlikely a 6lb penalty will prevent him following up in this. Plough Boy looks less likely to go in again given he dead-heated for first with Shannon Haven at Lingfield last month and the latter has been beaten twice since. Blue Oyster never threatened the winner when third on her handicap debut having scored at Wolverhampton before that, but Goleador posted a better effort on his reappearance and may get involved racing off the same mark today.
