The Celebration Chase provides Grade 1 quality as last year’s winner Greaneteen attempts to defend his crown although the likes of Envoi Allen, Nube Negra and Sceau Royal could put up a fight.

Other highlights include the Gold Cup potentially featuring Scottish Grand National 1-2 Win My Wings and Kitty’s Light, and the Grade 2 Oaksey Chase.

Who are the favourites to win at Sandown on Saturday?

Paul Nicholls’ Knappers Hill heads the betting with Paddy Power for the Novices’ Championship Final Handicap Hurdle after bouncing back with a win at Newton Abbot last time out.

The Ditcheat trainer is fancied to finish the season with a flourish as he also saddles the favourite for the Oaksey Chase. Hitman has been in the frame on all four of his runs this season including the Melling Chase at Aintree last time out.

Nube Negra, who missed the Cheltenham Festival, leads the market for the Celebration Chase as Dan Skelton’s former Spanish Flat runner attempts to land his first Grade 1 success.

Kitty’s Light finished behind Win My Wings in the Scottish Grand National at Ayr earlier this month but is fancied to reverse the form with his stablemate in the Gold Cup thanks to a favourable 12lbs swing in the handicap.
