Sizing Europe takes Dial-A-Bet Chase

Sizing Europe registered his third victory of the campaign with a determined performance in the Paddy Power Dial-A-Bet Chase at Leopardstown.

Henry de Bromhead’s stable star was a 1-3 favourite to add to his Grade One tally and was disputing the lead with Rubi Light throughout the two-mile-one-furlong test.

Despite travelling noticeably better than his closest rival heading down the back straight, some fine leaps from Rubi Light kept him in contention.

Sizing Europe and Andrew Lynch looked set to ease clear from the home turn, but it was hard work in the testing conditions and Rubi Light galloped on tenaciously to make the market leader pull out all the stops.

British raider Edgardo Sol was third.
