SIZING EUROPE SEIZES VICTORY IN THE TINGLE CREEK AT SANDOWN

SIZING Europe has seized another victory today by winning the Tingle Creek at Sandown.

The 11/8F battled against Nicholls' Kauto Stone, half-brother to Champion horse Kauto Star.

Wishfull Thinking, ridden by Richard Johnson, started ahead of Sizing Europe, leading by 15 lengths at the seventh fence.

Sizing Europe and Kauto Stone galloped behind, both jumping fluently over the fences.

As the second half of the Chase came into action, Sizing Europe and Kauto Stone closed the gap with Wishfull Thinking.

Johnson may have raced ahead too quickly, leaving Wishfull Thinking less time to recover against the two horses battling against him.

The crowd roared as riders Andrew Lynch and Ruby Walsh reached the final furlong, yet by the last jump Sizing Europe was easily the best horse on form, leading by 5-6 lengths ahead of Kauto Stone.

Sizing Europe may have been a little slow on the fences on the back straight, but Andrew Lynch proved to the punters exactly why the horse is a champion chaser.


Full result:
1st -   Sizing Europe, 11/8F
2nd -  Kauto Stone, 7/2
3rd -   Cornas, 16/1
