The South: Novice Skycab to relish easier task; View from the training centres.

SKYCAB can land a big prize for trainer Josh Gifford, who had a winner at Plumpton two days ago, by winning the Daily Telegraph Handicap Chase (3.10) at Ascot this afternoon, writes Matthew Doyle.

The eight-year-old finished down the field behind Dark Stranger on his last start, the Mildmay of Flete Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.

However, he faces an easier task here and the Montelimar gelding, who has won twice in novice company this season, should go well on a quiet day for runners from this quarter.

ASCOT: 3.10 Skycab (nap).
