Pahente landed a double on the Turf track at Lingfield in August but was well beaten off today's higher mark at Haydock before a couple of spins over hurdles. A chance is taken on SILKEE SUPREME staying the longer trip despite that fact he's yet to win as Richard Hannon's charge was only beaten a couple of lengths in a higher grade contest at Lingfield last week and a 7lb claimer further boosts his claims. Made Of More and Bennelong could figure off their current marks if back to their best and Kambis has improved over hurdles since last seen on the level.
