De Bromhead looks to future
Henry de Bromhead is weighing up his options ahead of the paddypower.com Future Champions Novices' Hurdle at Leopardstown on December 27.
De Bromhead has three entries at this stage in Too Scoops, Sizing Rio and Clonbanan Lad, but whereas the latter was well beaten behind Jezki in the Royal Bond, the other two could not be in better form.
Too Scoops, owned by some Paddy Power employees, won a Listed Punchestown Hurdle last time out, while Sizing Rio landed a Grade Three at Navan.
"Too Scoops came out of his last race in really good form," said the County Waterford handler.
"It was a good performance, but I'm not sure just yet if he's going to go to Leopardstown.
"I've also got Sizing Rio entered in that and he's also progressing nicely, so I'll just have to sit down with both sets of owners and see what is right for each horse."
