Sizing team mull Christmas optionsHeadlines
Sizing Europe

Henry De Bromhead is still keeping his options open as to what race to run Sizing Europe in over Christmas.

The County Waterford trainer is convinced his dual Queen Mother Champion Chase hero stays a lot further than two miles these days and is considering races at various distances.

The 10-year-old holds entries in the William Hill King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day, the Paddy Power Dial-A-Bet Chase at Leopardstown on December 27 and the Lexus Chase there the following day.

"He's in super form. He was brilliant the other day and he's looking much more like a staying type of horse this year," De Bromhead told At The Races.

"We haven't decided yet. We have three options - the King George, the Lexus and the Dial-A-Bet Chase at Leopardstown. I think he has already proved he gets further. He was second to Kauto Star (at Down Royal in 2010) and he was all-out on very heavy ground last year at Down Royal.

"I don't know how anybody can make a case that he is not a three-mile horse."
