Colin Tizzard's Cue Card beat the subsequently impressive Old Roan Chase winner For Non Stop at Newbury and then finished second to Sprinter Sacre in the Arkle.
The Philip Hobbs-trained Menorah took his time to warm to fences and was beaten much further in the Arkle.
But by the time he got to Aintree he knew his job and landed a Grade One in style, beating Saturday's Down Royal winner Cristal Bonus by seven lengths.
He ended his season with a fourth in heavy ground at the Punchestown Festival.
Hobbs has recently won the race with Monkerhostin (2005) and Planet Of Sound (2009).
Paul Nicholls runs Edgardo Sol, who proved very versatile last season.
Renard, trained by Venetia Williams, improved tremendously last season and is also in contention, while Jeremy Scott's Webberys Dream completes the field.
