QUINCEL posted a better effort on his Polytrack debut over track and trip. He was beaten only a short-head on that occasion and can go one better in this. He's preferred to stablemate Amadaffair while St Vincent never threatened when fourth here back in July and needs more now handicapping. Sheachevel makes more appeal than Exceed Areeda as both step up in trip and Opera Fan could prove best of the rest on her earlier second at Brighton.
