Sizing Europe may head to Clonmel
RACING:Henry de Bromhead is leaning towards running Sizing Europe in the Clonmel Oil Chase on November 15th after soft ground scuppered his intention to run over three miles at Down Royal on Saturday.
Second in the previous two runnings of the JNwine.comChampion Chase, de Bromhead was eager to see his charge run over three miles on good ground, but overnight rain turned the conditions soft.
Now his options rest between the Fortria Chase at Navan next week or the Clonmel Oil Chase the following Thursday. “The ground is more important going out towards three miles. Over two and two and a half it doesn’t matter so much. I would say we are leaning more towards Clonmel but I wouldn’t like to say for sure,” said de Bromhead.
