Mauricetheathlete is scheduled to make a swift reappearance after finishing fifth in a better race over C&D on Saturday. He never seems to run a bad race here and should be thereabouts if turned out again. Sail And Return beat subsequent Exeter winner Storm Alert over 2m4f at Uttoxeter in November and should confirm running on better terms while Always Bold stays well and likes the mud, though found Award Winner too strong off this mark at Uttoxeter on New Year's Eve. LAFLAMMEDEGLORIE has only had three career starts and the last of them was almost a year ago but fitness is rarely an issue with a David Pipe runner and he has a lot more scope than any of his rivals. Proven in the mud, he can make a successful return to action.
