Europe stays in Dial-A-Bet mix

SIZING EUROPE is one of nine possible runners in the Paddy Power Dial-A-Bet Chase at Leopardstown on December 27.

The multiple Grade One winner has looked as good as ever in winning his two starts this season and the Dial-A-Bet Chase is one of three possible options for him next week, the other two being the Lexus Chase and the King George VI Chase.

Trainer Henry de Bromhead revealed earlier this week his stable star was more likely to stay at home rather than travel to Kempton for the King George. If he does line up in the Dial-A-Bet Chase over two miles he could face old rivals Big Zeb and Forpadydeplasterer.

Robbie Hennessy's Rubi Light is set to come back in trip having finished a distant third in the John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase, while champion trainer Willie Mullins has only one entry in talented mare Blazing Tempo.
