Sizing John Returns But Douvan Out

Written 11 months ago by Midlands Sport

The 2017 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Sizing John makes his seasonal reappearance in Sunday’s Grade 1 John Durkan Memorial Chase at Punchestown.

Jockey Robbie Power says that the two and a half mile trip will be ideal for him – and that he is very hopeful that he can get his campaign off to a winning start.

Ante-post favourite ‘Douvan’ has been ruled out of Saturday’s Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown.

The Willie Mullins trained seven year old did not appear among the declarations for the two-mile Grade One this morning.

The Carlow based trained was said to be ‘not entirely happy’ with the horse after some light work earlier today.
