Juvenal will be a warm order having finished third behind recent Dante winner Bonfire over a mile at Salisbury in September. But considering it was also soft ground, he's facing very different conditions on his return and SANDBETWEENOURTOES is preferred. The latter attempted to make all over 7f at Kempton earlier this month and today's shorter trip could be what he needs to get his head in front. Cheworee looked more like his old self last time after a disappointing reappearance run and Zhiggy's Stardust made a promising start while better is expected in due course form the likes of Daffyd and Nocturn.
