Henry de Bromhead is in no rush to decide which race at the Punchestown Festival Sizing Europe will contest following his fine effort in defeat at Cheltenham last week.

The veteran did his best to fight off the awesome Sprinter Sacre running down the hill and although he was readily swept aside in the end, Sizing Europe was a clear second.

As there is no race over an intermediate distance at Punchestown next month, De Bromhead will either stick at two miles for the Boylesports.com Champion Chase, which he won last year, or step up to three miles in the Punchestown Gold Cup.

De Bromhead said: "He's fine - there's not a bother on him.

"We're hoping he'll go to Punchestown, all being well.

"We'll see what the ground is like and how it all unfolds.

"It's still a few weeks away yet, so we'll see."
