Nicky Henderson's charge was a seven-length winner on his most recent outing and beat subsequent Grade One scorer Taquin De Seuil on his hurdling bow. He is one of six possible challengers from Seven Barrows with Petit Robin topping the weights for the valuable handicap.
Cash And Go, Punjabi, Lyvius and First In The Queue also feature for Henderson, while Paul Nicholls has three entries. His possibles include second-favourite Pearl Swan, Dark Love and Caid Du Berlais.
Grumeti and Manyriverstocross have been left in for Alan King with David Pipe being triple-handed with Ronaldo Des Mottes, the unbeaten Swing Bowler and prolific winner Home Run.
Cause Of Causes leads the Irish challenge after winning The Ladbroke at Ascot before Christmas and he is on course to tackle another big handicap engagement.
Trainer Gordon Elliott said: "He's fine and the plan is for him to go to Newbury.
"We've also confirmed him for the Deloitte in Leopardstown, but that is just in case something happens with the weather or something like that. We're looking forward to running him."
Elliott also has Discoteca in the field with both Willie Mullins and Tony Martin also double-handed with Midnight Game and Quiscover Fontaine, and Edeymi and Thomas Edison respectively.
The Eddie Harty-trained Princeton Plains rounds out a strong Irish contingent.
Other notable contenders include Court Minstrel, Cotton Mill and Claret Cloak but Mullins' Abbey Lane does not feature.
