Ante-post favourite Dingo Dollar features in a final field of 11 runners for the Sky Bet Chase at Doncaster on Saturday.

Alan King’s charge is a previous winner at the track and was last seen finishing third in the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury in early December.

Heading the weights is last year’s runner-up Warriors Tale.

The Paul Nicholls-trained 10-year-old was beaten just a head by Wakanda in the prestigious handicap, formerly known as the Great Yorkshire Chase, 12 months ago and returns at the top of his game following a recent victory over the Grand National fences at Aintree in the Grand Sefton.

Warriors Tale is one of two runners for the 10-times champion trainer along with Art Mauresque. Nicholls is bidding for a third win in the race following the previous triumphs of Colourful Life (2005) and Big Fella Thanks (2009).

There was just half a length between Nicky Henderson’s O O Seven and the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained Go Conquer when they finished first and second over the course and distance last month and the pair renew rivalry on Town Moor this weekend.

Charlie Longsdon’s impressive Wetherby winner Willie Boy is another to consider, as is Calipto, a last-time-out winner for Venetia Williams.

Brian Boranha (Peter Niven), On Tour (Evan Williams), Monbeg River (Martin Todhunter) and Federici (Donald McCain) complete the line-up.
