Skybet Chase shaping up to be a cracker

Doncaster's feature race of the NH season the 3m Skybet Chase is shaping up to be a belter after the weights where published today with last years winner Calgary Bay now trained by Mick Channon handed top weight alongside Midnight Chase and Champion Court who put up a career best performance to finish 4th in the King George behind Long Run & a reproduction of that run would make him would give him a leading chance.
Other notable entries are the 2011 Grand National winner Ballabriggs. Paddy Power Gold Cup runner up Walkon.
Evan Williams has entered his Grand National hope Cappa Bleu who bypassed The Betfred Classic at Warwick last week.
Scotland's leading jumps trainer Lucinda Russell has a very strong hand in the race with her Gold Cup entry Bold Sir Brian entered alongside stable companion Silver By Nature who could make his comeback after almost two years off the track.
A high class contest in store and lets just hope the cold snap relents to allow this and a great supporting card at Doncaster next Saturday.
