1:30 Cheltenham- Brewinupastorm 8/1 (0.5pt ew)
Brewinupastorm has always had a big reputation from the Olly Murphy yard and justified that on his debut for the yard when he won a bumper by 9 lengths beating a subsequent Grade 2 winner in the process. He won impressively on hurdling debut before slightly disappointing in the Challow Hurdle behind Champ on his next start. I think experience was against him that day and he was much improved when coming to win the race over this C&D on trials day against Birchdale when he fell at the last.
It obviously isn’t ideal that Brewinupastorm arrives on the back of a fall but given he would have won a C&D Grade 2 last time, he should hold a strong chance each way in this race with up to five places on offer.
