Good support arrived early for the well handicapped Pelmanism in the opener at Wolver. Placed in five of six starts on polytrack, the Brian Ellison-trained five-year-old was last seen on this surface winning off a mark of 70 and he should go well with blinkers reapplied down in class.
Returned to the winner's enclosure with a comfortable success at Lingfield last week, and should take the beating off top weight under a 6lb penalty. The drop in trip should not be a problem and if anything, today's race looks weaker.
Making only his second run for new trainer Pat Phelan, Silly Billy has more than halved in price this morning in the closing race at Lingfield Park. Returning to form last time out when perked up by a first time visor, much will depend on whether the headgear has a similar effect today especially given his wide draw and the drop in trip.
