Fairly useful winning chaser at around 3m but he seemed not to get home when seventh in Welsh National at Chepstow in December. Let down by jumping next time and others are more persuasive.

He has won three hurdle races and a chase from 2m 4f to 3m on good to soft and soft ground. Fell at the 12th when 6-1 at Musselburgh over 4m 1f (good to soft) in a chase won by Bob Mahler in February on his latest outing.

Usually goes well in long-distance chases and did that for a long way at Musselburgh in February, a pair of mid-race errors not aiding his cause. Looked rusty after 5 months off at Uttoxeter in July.

He has won a hurdle race and three chases from 2m 7f to 3m 5f on good and good to soft ground, but last win was over two years ago. Well beaten at 13-2 when 11th of 12 on his latest outing in a chase at Uttoxeter over 3m 2f (good) in July.

Off the mark for this yard over fences at Musselburgh (26.6f) in February. Better for return when a good second at Perth, albeit no match for winner. This tougher.

He has won three hurdle races and a chase from 2m to 3m 3f on ground varying from good to heavy. Beaten 2 1/2l by Cage Of Fear when second of 7 at 10-1 on his latest outing in a chase at Perth over 3m (good to soft) last month.

Fairly useful at best for Gordon Elliott but could hardly have shown any less for new connections after 10 months off at Bangor.

He has won three hurdle races and a chase from 2m to 2m 5f on ground varying from good to soft - heavy. Well beaten at 100-1 behind Manofthemountain when 9th of 14 on his latest outing in a chase at Bangor-on-Dee over 3m (good) last month.

Has long looked like he'd excel in staying chases and there was plenty to like about his first go over fences at Catterick (19.2f). Landed the odds at Kelso since and remains with potential.

Won on his latest outing in a chase when 8-11fav at Kelso over 2m 7f (heavy) in March, beating Kalaharry by 2l.

Well below form all 4 starts this season after a year off. Temperamental.

Winner of two hurdle races and four chases from 2m 6f to 3m 1f on good and good - yielding ground. Well beaten at 14-1 behind Amalfi Doug when seventh of 8 on his latest outing in a chase at Perth over 3m (good) last month.

Largely in fine form around 3m last winter, scoring over hurdles/fences at Musselburgh. All the better for return when narrow winner over hurdles 6 weeks ago but opposable from out of weights here.

Winner of two hurdle races, two NH flat races, a chase and a point-to-point from 2m to 3m on good and good to soft ground. A winner at 33-1 in a hurdle race at Perth over 3m (good) on his latest outing last month, beating Heavey by a head.

At The Races Verdict

DUC DE GRISSAY built on a promising chase debut when third to Saint Sonnet at Catterick to score at Kelso on his novice handicap debut over the larger obstacles. The seven-year-old remains open to further improvement with the step up in distance likely to aid his cause. Doing Fine is still in excellent form at the age of 12, winning three of his last five starts including at Uttoxeter in August, and he has to enter the reckoning along with Gangster, who has shaped as though this kind of test would suit him.

Timeform Verdict

DANDY DAN was let down by his jumping in a Grade 3 handicap at Cheltenham when last seen in December but he was promising prior to that and is taken to get back on track returned to calmer waters. Duc de Grissay remains totally unexposed after winning his second chase start at Kelso in March and should be suited by long distances, so rates the main threat ahead of the in-form Doing Fine.
