New Lingfield feature a possible option for Brewin’upastorm

Olly Murphy is considering the inaugural Winter Million meeting for Brewin’upastorm.

Hugely impressive on his reappearance at Aintree over two and a half miles, there is a race over the same distance at Lingfield on January 23, the Winter Million Hurdle race, worth £100,000.

The alternative option is the Dornan Engineering Relkeel Hurdle at Cheltenham on New Year’s Day, where £70,000 is up for grabs in the Grade Two.

“He was very good that day at Aintree,” said Murphy.

“There’s a lovely race for him at Lingfield at their big meeting, so I don’t know whether we’re going to go for the Relkeel or Lingfield – or even both.

“He’s in good form but he definitely wouldn’t run before the Relkeel if that is where he goes – he’s very good fresh.

“I think the key to him is having him fresh, and maybe also riding him a bit more positively than we ever have.

“He’s a horse who is slowly getting his confidence back, it’s nearly there. As we saw at Aintree he’s very good on his day and I think he’s well up to winning a Grade One.”
