Tote Cheltenham Gold Cup hope Brother Of Iris must carry top weight in Saturday's Pertemps Great Yorkshire Chase.

He was left heading the handicap for the Doncaster race on 11st 13lb after the withdrawal today of Random Harvest and the late Unguided Missile.

His trainer Mary Reveley also has Fullopep among the 30 confirmations for a #40,000-added contest she has won with Dalkey Sound and Carbisdale in the past.

The last two winners Major Bell and Speaker Weatherill are also in the line-up, along with Village King who scored impressively at Cheltenham on New Year's Eve for Philip Hobbs.

Trainer Peter Beaumont confirmed Niki Dee to be an intended runner in Saturday's three-mile contest as long there are no extremes of going.

"He's in good shape and on target for the race. Robbie Supple will ride," Beaumont said.

"He would only miss the race if the ground was either heavy or fast."
