Pelmanism is now on his highest-ever mark but is running very well and won't mind the ground conditions. Indian Trail hasn't won for two years nor has Pavershooz but the latter is in such good heart at present that he looks a threat to all. The former's trainer Dandy Nicholls' is also represented by RIO COBOLO, who won a 0-70 handicap over the C&D on this card a year ago and has been racing exclusively over 7f this season. He has enough pace to take this and the drop back in trip looks just what's required. Ryan Style won here in June but the going was very fast that day as it has been for all of Tombi's three career victories.
