RELENTLESS HARRY ran out a clear winner on his racecourse debut over today's trip at Wolverhampton. Frankie picks up the ride today and normal progress should see him follow-up on his handicap debut. Ballesteros is more exposed but finally won his maiden at Haydock last month, while Redcar maiden winner Rougini will need to improve. This is tougher than the nursery won by Aquasulis at Wolverhampton recently, but Amis Reunis could be thereabouts dropped in class.
