Europe sizes up Gowran event

Henry de Bromhead is looking forward to giving Sizing Europe his first run of the season at Gowran Park on Saturday week.

The Queen Mother Champion Chase winner is to begin the new campaign in the Grade Two Gowran Park Champion Chase over two and a half miles. What happens in that race is likely to help De Bromhead decide on plans for the winter.

"Hopefully we'll start him off in Gowran next Saturday," the County Waterford handler told At The Races.

"He seems in good form and he's schooling well, so we'll start him off in the Grade Two two-and-a-half-mile chase there.

"We'll see how we get on and make plans from there.

"We'll keep all our options open. We'll start in Gowran, see how we get on, and then progress from there.

"He's a very adaptable horse."
