Reigning champion Big Zeb will face a maximum of 14 rivals when he attempts to land the sportingbet.com Queen Mother Champion Chase for a second time on March 16.

Paul Nolan's brilliant two-miler, a four times Grade 1 winner, must again take on Master Minded who is unbeaten in three starts so far this season.

Somersby, who ran Master Minded so close in the Victor Chandler Chase at Ascot last month, is in the field with Nicholls also represented by Tataniano and Woolcombe Folly.

Captain Cee Bee, Cornas, French Opera, Gauvain, Golden Silver, I'm So Lucky, J'y Vole, Mad Max, Scotsirish and Sizing Europe complete a select gathering.

Nicholls has taken out Tchico Polos while other notable absentees were Petit Robin and the out-of-sorts pair Forpadydeplasterer and Crack Away Jack.
