Sizing Europe: Tied Cottage hopeful

Sizing Europe could face up to six rivals when he defends his crown in the Boylesports.com Tied Cottage Chase at Punchestown on Sunday.

Henry de Bromhead's incredible 11-year-old has appeared as good as ever in winning his three starts this season and is set to take in this weekend's Grade Two test en-route to the Cheltenham Festival in March.

His Cheltenham target has not yet been decided with the Queen Mother Champion Chase, which he won in 2011, the Ryanair Chase and the Cheltenham Gold Cup all under consideration at this stage.

Sizing Europe looks likely to be a warm order in this weekend's two-mile event, with 20lb and more in hand over each of his opponents on official ratings.

Three entries for champion trainer Willie Mullins head the opposition, with talented mare Blazing Tempo joined by stable companions Call The Police and Twinlight.

Foildubh regularly picks up prize-money at this level without winning, while Imperial Shabra and Kylebeg Krystle complete the confirmations.
