Warwick Kingmaker Chase Trends 2015
Tue, Jan 27th, 2015

The 2012 Kingmaker Chase at  Warwick was lost to the weather and the race is often overshadowed by the Totesport Gold Trophy meeting run at Newbury on the same day.The race is a Grade 2 run over two miles and being restricted to novices provides one of the last trials for potential Arkle Trophy Chase candidates.

The roll of honour includes high profile winners ( not necessarily in the Arkle !) at the Cheltenham Festival including Champion Chasers Finians Rainbow, Voy Por Ustedes and Flagship Ubarelles. The 2011 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Long Run won the 2010 renewal.

The " Kingmaker" name doesn't reference a great horse of the past but rather the 16th Earl of Warwick, who was known as the "Kingmaker" during the Wars of the Roses.
