Gordon Elliott has won the race twice in recent years and jockey Davy Russell three times in recent years. Whichever horse he gets on may be notable. Gordon Elliott is mob handed in this and surely 1 of his runners will place. Tombstone looks the obvious one after beating Jezki last time out. Itwas 12/1 now as short as 6/1.

Nicky Henderson has also won the race twice since 2010 and has 8 entries this year.

10-07 got into the race last year, and there are currently 39 horses on 10-07 or more.

His 2 winners carried 11-06 & 11-02, so if Camping ground stays in then Nicky currently has L´Ami Serge on 11-04 & Volnay De Thaix on 11-02.

These are also the only 2 horses from Nicky's yard to carry 10-07 or more.

I'd mentioned Old Guard In the OLBG Tipster blog but I had read that the owner wanted to send him to the Stayers' Hurdle but watching the Betfair preview from the other day the trainer - Paul Nicholls - has said he'll be in this race and I think that's a good call. He's at the top end of the weights but the mark looks fair as he was rated 157 after winning the International (Bula) 15 months ago at this course. Nicholls can possibly look to throw his 5lb claimer on to nulify the mark if any of the 6 above him in the weights pull out.
