Calgary ready for Doncaster

Calgary Bay is set to defend his title in the Sky Bet Chase - but a return visit to the Grand National is not on the cards.

A fine performer for Henrietta Knight over the years, he finished 14th over the Aintree fences last season.

Since Knight's retirement, the gelding is now trained by Mick Channon and finished well beaten in two outings earlier this winter.

Knight, who now assists Channon with his jumpers, said: "He's going to go to Doncaster for the Sky Bet Chase, which he won last year, just so long as the weather is all right.

"I don't think he'll go for the National again. The owners don't think he quite gets four miles, so he might go for something like the Topham there instead."
