Sky Bet Chase Trends

Staged at Doncaster racecourse, the Sky Bet Chase (formerly known as the Great Yorkshire Chase) is a Listed Handicap run over 3m. The race can often throw up some Grand National clues, although no winner in the last 16 runnings has gone onto win the Aintree marathon.

In recent years, the Alan King, Paul Nicholls and Pipe stables have dominated the race with two wins a-piece since 2003, while in the last 16 runnings we’ve seen just two winning favourites – the 2021 Sky Bet Chase was won by the Nicky Richards-trained 12 year-old Takingrisks at a massive 40/1.

Here at GeeGeez we look back at recent winners (note, the 2010 and 2011 runnings were abandoned) and gives you the key stats to take into the 2022 renewal – this year being run on Saturday 29th January.
