Spring campaign for Mia’s Storm
Alan King intends to give talented mare Mia's Storm a short break before readying her for a spring campaign.
The eight-year-old lost her unbeaten record over fences at Kempton on Boxing Day when suffering a mid-race fall in the Kauto Star Novices' Chase.
King said: "She didn't go on the ground and it was always a risk in a Grade One to try to make her run on it. She hit a few and just couldn't pick her feet up on that ground.

"She is fine at home and we will now freshen her up and wait for the better ground in the spring with her."
A fourth consecutive outing in the Grade Two BetBright Trial Chase could be on the cards for 2016 winner Smad Place.
The 11-year-old finished down the field in a Grade Two at Ascot on his most recent start, having previously made a winning return to action at the same level at Aintree in October.
King added: "Smad Place is fine and he is just ticking away at the moment at home. There are no firm plans, but the Cotswold is a possibility. He won't be out until the end of January."
