Sizing Europe: Clonmel Oil Chase entry next Thursday
Sizing Europe is one of 17 top-class entries in the Clonmel Oil Chase at Clonmel next Thursday.
Trainer Henry de Bromhead favours waiting for the Grade Two event rather than running in the Fortria Chase this weekend after he missed an intended run over three miles in the Champion Chase at Down Royal last weekend.
Nicky Henderson has entered Nadiya De La Vega and Quantitativeeasing, who both have the option of the Paddy Power Gold Cup on Saturday week.
Big Zeb has also been entered but he is more likely to compete in the Fortria, but Forpadydeplasterer could run for Tom Cooper.
Willie Mullins has entered Blazing Tempo and Apt Approach, while Galway Plate winner Bob Lingo could represent Mullins' brother, Tom.
Magnanimity, Mr Cracker, Rathlin and Roi Du Mee are the options for the powerful Gigginstown House Stud.
Realt Dubh and Tranquil Sea, who has won the last two renewals, are also engaged.
