Harrington confirms John entry
Connections will hope Sizing John can provide festive joy after Jessica Harrington backed him for the Leopardstown Christmas Chase.
The 2017 Gold Cup hero returned earlier this month with a victory in the John Durkan at Punchestown and it appears all roads lead back to Prestbury Park.
Before that, he is set to run at Leopardstown in the traditional feature on January 28 where he will go up against Willie Mullins' Yorkhill.
Harrington says she is pleased by how the seven-year-old is coming along and is confident the conditions will suit him.
"He's definitely running," Harrington told the Irish Times. "I'm happy with everything now we've got the first run of the season out of the way.
"He won on heavy at Punchestown (John Durkan Chase) so I don't mind what the ground will be like at Leopardstown."
