PELMANISM is an improving four-year-old judged on his three wins on the Polytrack this year. The form of his latest victory at Kempton has been boosted by the subsequent victories of the runner-up and fourth-placed horses and he can race off a lower mark back on turf. Dickie Le Davoir, Electioneer and Powerful Pierre also arrive on the back of recent wins on the all-weather though their form doesn't match that of the selection. Others to consider include Dancing Freddy, who won off today's mark at Ayr in October, Carrie's Magic and the unexposed Henry Morgan.
