The two brilliant two-milers will put their 100% records over fences on the line at the Esher venue in an eagerly-awaited showdown.
The Nicky Henderson-trained Sprinter Sacre was a superb winner of the Arkle Trophy at the Cheltenham Festival while Sanctuaire has yet to put a foot wrong since Paul Nicholls switched him to the bigger obstacles.
Nicholls has also entered Doeslessthanme and Henderson also has a second string in French Opera.
The numbers are made up by Escort'men, Gracchus, Idarah, Kinkeel, Kumbeshwar and His Excellency.
