Icy Quiet was fancied over C&D on Monday and sent off favourite but could only manage third to Easydoesit with Nolecce not far behind in fourth. The placed horses may well reverse running on better terms but there's little between them and it could pay to stick with SINCHIROKA instead. He won with a stack in hand over a shorter trip here last week and can shrug off a penalty as Ralph Smith's charge remains on a decent mark compared to his best form. Peace In Our Time looks best of the rest.
