ACCORDING To Pete will put his unbeaten chasing record to the test when he lines up in the prestigious £85,000 Sky Bet Chase at Doncaster today.

But Norton trainer Malcolm Jefferson’s gelding, unbeaten in three starts over fences, is going to have to overcome a top field if he is to add this three-mile contest to his growing trophy cabinet.

Third in last year’s Pertemps Final, According To Pete has struck at Hexham and Newcastle on the bigger obstacles and has six wins from 20 starts.

But there are a host of challengers ready to stake their claims in the contest, which was first held at Doncaster in 1948 as the Great Yorkshire Chase.

Ungaro, runner-up 12 months ago, is bidding to go one place better and Keith Reveley believes his ten-year-old – collared in the last 75 yards by An Accordion last year – could notch up a deserved victory.

“He was second last year and we’ll have another go,” the Saltburn trainer said. “He ran very well when he was second in the Grimthorpe Chase at the course last year as well, so he runs very well in these competitive handicaps here.

“We want good ground for him really, but we will have a go anyway. He seems to be in good form and runs better on flat tracks like Doncaster.”

Hot Weld, winner of both the Scottish Grand National and the Sandown Gold Cup when last seen in 2007, will line up for West Witton’s Ferdy Murphy.

And 12-year-old You’re Special, successful in the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup at the 2006 Cheltenham Festival, along with Noir Et Vert, will also be representing Murphy in the valuable contest.
