Defending champion Alexander Levy will have another former winner alongside him when he tees up in this week's Volvo China Open.

Levy, who won last week's Trophee Hassan II in Morocco, is paired with 2016 champion Li Haotong.

They will go out at 07:20 on Thursday in Beijing, with four-time European Tour winner Kiradech Aphibarnrat completing the three-ball.

Li leads a strong home challenge which also includes former champion Ashun Wu, who goes off at 12:40 alongside Shaun Norris and Gavin Green.

Big-hitting Spaniard Alvaro Quiros, who led for three rounds in Morocco last week before finishing runner-up to Levy, starts his quest to go on better in at 12:50 in a group containing New Zealander Ryan Fox and Seungsu Han.

Former Amateur Championship winner Bradley Neil is first out at 6:40 with David Gleeson and amateur Peicheng Chen for company.

Austria's Bernd Wiesberger joins Denmark's Thorbjørn Olesen and in-form Indian Shubhankar Sharma in a 12:20 grouping. 

Former Ryder Cup star Nicolas Colsaerts, who won this event in 2011, tees off at 07:40 alongside Pablo Larrázabal and Yanwei Liu.
