Cheltenham Gold Cup clues could be on offer at Doncaster on Saturday in the Sky Bet Chase - if the meeting beats the weather.
Lucinda Russell's Bold Sir Brian and the Venetia Williams-trained Katenko, both engaged in the blue riband, could enhance their Festival claims in the Listed handicap over three miles.
Joining Bold Sir Brian at the top of the weights is Midnight Chase, who has run in the Gold Cup for the past two years but does not have an entry this season, and last year's Sky Bet Chase winner Calgary Bay. Champion Court has, however, been taken out by Martin Keighley.
Donald McCain's Grand National winner Ballabriggs still has the option, as does Malcolm Jefferson's impressive Rowland Meyrick Chase winner Cape Tribulation.
Alan King's Walkon, second in the two big handicaps at Cheltenham in November and December, could step back up in trip, while former Hennessy winner Carruthers is also engaged. Cappa Bleu, Always Right, Harry The Viking, Nadiya De La Vega and Tatenen also feature in the 37-strong entry.
The StanJames.com Champion Hurdle Trial, re-routed to Town Moor from Haydock's abandoned meeting last Saturday, has been reopened.
Only seven entries have been received for the Grade Two race, with the likes of Countrywide Flame, Raya Star, Peddlers Cross and Grandouet in the frame for the original event. Due to the insufficient entries, connections now have until 11am on Tuesday to decide whether or not they would like to run.
Doncaster's meeting on Friday is, however, already subject to an inspection on Wednesday.
