Former Grand National hero Ballabriggs tops a total of 17 entries for Saturday's StanJames Supporting Greatwood Gold Cup Chase at Newbury.

Donald McCain's charge landed the Aintree feature back in 2011 but has failed to sparkle in two starts to date this term.

Big Fella Thanks is a possible runner in this year's National and he will have to carry top weight if he runs in this Grade Three event as he boasts a rating of 154.

Becher Chase second Join Together has been entered by Paul Nicholls, who also has Pacher Du Polder and The Knoxs in the mix, while Alan King has both Bless The Wings and Saturday's Kempton winner Midnight Sail.

Venetia Williams has entered Pepite Rose and Renard while Tim Vaughan can choose from Saved From John and Tartak.

Old favourite Mahogany Blaze could represent Nigel Twiston-Davies while Tony Star is an eyecatching entry for Philip Hobbs.
