Brewin’upastorm set for Kingmaker test
Brewin’upastorm has been rerouted to the Kingmaker Novices’ Chase at Warwick.
Olly Murphy had been aiming among his stars in the Henry VIII Novices’ Chase at Sandown, once he started life with two faultless displays at Carlisle and Taunton more than fences.
However, he picked up an accident in the Taunton event, in which he beat Dovecote Novices’ Hurdle winner Southfield Stone, and Murphy has had to reassess.
“We’re looking to opt for the Kingmaker today,” he explained.
“He’s been down on the water treadmill for a fortnight.
“He just gave himself a proper encounter in his last race and he is due to come back into training with me on Monday.
“He hasn’t lost any fitness, he just gave himself a small trauma. It’s a true shame, since this weekend’s race looked perfect for him, but that’s racing”
