Last Updated: 20/04/17 12:33pm
Missed Approach and Vivaldi Collonges head a maximum field of 30 declared for the Coral Scottish Grand National at Ayr on Saturday.
The weights have gone up 3lb following the defection of Yala Enki, leaving Warren Greatrex's Missed Approach and the Paul Nicholls-trained Vivaldi Collonges at the top of the handicap.
There are two past winners in the line-up - Vicente, who struck 12 months ago for the Nicholls team, and Peter Bowen's 2014 hero Al Co.
Nicholls also saddles Arpege D'Alene.
Ante-post favourite Premier Bond is among three runners from the Nicky Henderson stable along with Lessons In Milan and Sugar Baron.
Other fancied horses in the mix include Sandy Thomson's Seldom Inn, Neil Mulholland's Southfield Royale, the Emma Lavelle-trained Shotgun Paddy and Sue Smith's Vintage Clouds.
Stuart Crawford's Fine Rightly and the Patrick Griffin-trained pair of Portrait King and Man With Van make the journey from across the Irish Sea.
Full Jack, trained by Pauline Robson, is the one reserve.
