Former two-mile Champion Chase winner Sizing Europe has been retired by his owners Alan and Ann Potts.

Also a winner of the Arkle Chase at Cheltenham and going so close in a Champion Hurdle when he was cruising to the front before breaking a blood vessel, the 13-year-old finished down the field at both this year's Cheltenham and Punchestown Festivals.

Trainer Henry de Bromhead described Sizing Europe as 'the horse of a lifetime' after being in charge for every one of the horse's runs during a superb career.
