Silver Wind took advantage of a much lower mark on the all-weather compared to his turf rating when scoring over C&D last week. He only just won, however, and may struggle following up under a penalty so TORRES DEL PAINE makes more appeal. He's slipped down the weights and a recent second at Kempton suggests he's ready to strike. Penny's Pearl will find this tougher than the claimer she won here a fortnight ago and recent C&D winner Trojan Rocket is more interesting.
