A final field of 19 head to Town Moor on Saturday to contest Doncaster's Sky Bet Chase, William Hill going 4-1 about the Paul Nicholls-trained Fistral Beach.
The eight-year-old steps up in class and trip, arriving on the back of a superb seasonal return at Wincanton when a ready winner over two-miles-five, and seeks his second victory at the track.
Wogan is another who moves well across the South Yorkshire turf, the son of Presenting looking for his third gold medal here for Nicky Henderson. He is set to re-oppose Malcom Jefferson's King Fontaine following the pair's Haydock encounter in November, the latter bidding for his fifth triumph in succession.
Take The Breeze heads the weights, whilst Chelters' William Hill Trophy winner Chief Dan George also finds himself at the higher end of the handicap.
Lucy Rhodes, spokeswoman for William Hill, said, ‘It's great to see such a valuable and competitive handicap in the north which is not only able to attract the local contingent, but some prolific southern-based stables get in on the Town Moor action too. It's always a decent Grand National trial as Big Fella Thanks proved when taking this en-route having two creditable cracks at the big one.'
