Douvan will face his biggest field since making his chasing debut as seven take him on as he returns to action in the Kerry Group Hilly Way Chase at Cork on Sunday.
Douvan returns to action on Sunday
Willie Mullins' superstar is unbeaten over hurdles and fences since joining the champion trainer, and his five Grade One wins last season included victories at Cheltenham, Aintree and Punchestown.
He must give upwards of 2lb to all his rivals, including the winner of the race in 2012, Days Hotel, and will be ridden for the third time by Paul Townend, with Ruby Walsh in action at Punchestown.
Gordon Elliott fields two, The Game Changer and Vukovar, who failed to fulfil his potential in spells with Harry Fry and Warren Greatrex.
Fine Rightly runs over two miles having shown top-class form over three miles last season, and while Gilgamboa ran in the Grand National, he showed he was no slouch on his reappearance when nearly winning a Grade Two over this trip.
Mozoltov, now with Mouse Morris after leaving Mullins, and Ludo Et Emergo complete the field.
