Tip: Al Boum Photo has been there and done it last year and deserves to head the market however Clan Des Obeaux ran well here last year, won the King George VI chase on Boxing Day with ease and looks likely to be competitive. Presenting Percy ran well last year and could be worth a look at an each-way price.
