Ok Corral, Cabaret Queen and Mister Malarky feature among a final field of 24 for Saturday's £250,000 Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury.

The prestigious handicap chase has attracted a maximum field, with the lightly-raced Venetia Williams-trained grey Commodore the last to make the cut (Bennys King is the single reserve).

At the other end of the weights, Elegant Escape heads the field and last year's runner-up - under Harry Cobden - is one of four runners for trainer Colin Tizzard, who also saddles Robinsfirth, West Approach and the well-backed, second-season chaser Mister Malarky.

Nicky Henderson also has a four-strong team of horses declared for the three mile, two furlong contest, with Nico De Boinville booked to partner On The Blind Side. He's set to be joined by stable companions Beware The Bear, Brave Eagle and the JP McManus-owned Ok Corral, under Aidan Coleman.

Ireland's champion trainer Willie Mullins, who won the race a couple of years ago with Total Recall, relies on four-time Grade One winner Yorkhill and the progressive mare Cabaret Queen, last seen winning the Munster National.

Daryl Jacob rides the Gordon Elliott-trained Galway Plate winner Borice, top conditional Ben Jones takes the mount of De Rasher Counter for Emma Lavelle, while other leading contenders including Yala Enki for Bryony Frost and new trainer Paul Nicholls, Two Taffs for Dan Skelton and Dingo Dollar from the yard of Alan King.
