Don Herbager, a winner over this distance at Bangor-on-Dee 12 months ago, goes again for Venetia Williams under the ride of Charlie Deutsch, while Bryony Frost continues on the Lucy Wadham trained Éclair De Guye, having finished second of six in a handicap chase at Catterick last month.
Brian Hughes has been confirmed to take the mount of Conquredalofeurope again for local trainer Donald McCain Jr, while Sean Quinlan rides Glittering Love for trainer Nicky Richards.
No Cruise Yet, the Sam England trained winner of a Class 3 Handicap Chase at Haydock in November, is amongst the others to be declared, with her husband Jonathan in the saddle.
Lucinda Russell enters Buddha Scheme and Camp Belan, ridden by Stephen Mulqueen and Derek Fox, respectively.
The third race on a card of seven, the RPM North Wales National gets underway from 2.20pm.
