Sizing John could come back in trip to two miles at Leopardstown over Christmas.

The 2017 Cheltenham Gold Cup hero has not been seen in racecourse action since last December – but could have a gallop after racing at Punchestown next weekend.

Trainer Jessica Harrington told At The Races on Sunday: “Kate (Harrington) rode him this morning. Very much so (shows old ability), he really does – and just might surprise you by going over two miles at Christmas.”

The eight-year-old was due to return at Navan last month, but that was delayed due to a wind procedure.

He finished well beaten in the Leopardstown Christmas Chase and was unable to defend his Cheltenham crown in March due to a fractured pelvis.
