Surprised he's going that far (2m 7f) 1st time up ?

Well I guess he won over 2m 4f on his chase debut on heavy ground, although he didn't really beat much. I guess if they are going to run him in the King George they want to know early in case they need to change plans.

Sizing Europe may be stepped up significantly in trip as connections view a return to action at Punchestown next month.

The Arkle Trophy victor, winner of five out of six starts over fences last term, is pleasing trainer Henry de Bromhead who aims to test his staying ability.

The Waterford trainer said: "He's in good form and he's just ticking along at the moment.

"We'll see what happens in the next few weeks but we might start him back in a two-mile and seven-furlong race at Punchestown on October 13.

"We'll go there and see how he handles the trip and if he doesn't, we can always go back to two or two and a half mile afterwards.

"If he does handle it, I suppose we'll try three miles and take it from there. We'll play it by ear."
