Sizing Europe: King George at Kempton could be an option
Sizing Europe could be aimed at the William Hill King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day following his winning seasonal reappearance.
The crack two-miler, five times a Grade One winner over fences and victorious in the 2011 Queen Mother Champion Chase, made the perfect start to the new season at Gowran Park at the weekend.
Trainer Henry de Bromhead told At The Races: "He's been super, he was in mighty form today. We were delighted with the run, it was a lovely start and we'll see how we go.
"There's a couple of options, the James Nicholson (at Down Royal) if it's good to yielding kind of ground, or if it was very soft there he might go for the Fortria in Navan.
"The King George would be on our minds, I think all options are open. The other day he was going away from them after the last. We will look at three miles again, his two runs at three miles he was second both times so we'll go and have a look, we'll see."
