The Colin Tizzard horses, Cue Card and Native River, head a list of 14 contenders for next Friday’s Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup.
The pair have been battling it out at the head of the market since Cue Card emerged an impressive winner of the Ascot Chase last time out.
Native River added to his Hennessy and Welsh National successes when winning the Denman Chase at Newbury.
Irish Champion trainer Willie Mullins’ Djakadam, who finished second in the last two Gold Cups, is also to the top of the market and he is one of five Irish-trained contenders for the Cheltenham Festival’s feature race.
Gordon Elliott was forced to rule Don Poli out on Friday but he still has Outlander and Empire Of Dirt in the race.
Jessica Harrington’s Sizing John and the Henry de Bromhead-trained Champagne West are the other hopes from Ireland.
Paul Nicholls, who has won the race four times, relies on Saphir Du Rheu.
Nigel Twiston-Davies, a winner of the race with Imperial Commander in 2010, has Bristol De Mai in contention this time.
Co. Cork-born Jonjo O’Neill is doubly represented with Minella Rocco and More Of That, while the list of hopefuls is completed by Irish Cavalier, Smad Place and Tea For Two.
