Piton never threatened in three starts last year but steps up in distance for his reappearance and any strong support in the betting could prove significant. But HALLOUELLA looks a safer bet given she made the frame over track and trip earlier in the month and James Tate's filly gets the nod now handicapping for the first time. Khee Society finished runner-up over a mile at Southwell three weeks ago but his breeding gives mixed signals regarding today's trip while the remainder have yet to show any form worthy of a mention.
