Verdict

GRANDADS HORSE is likely to be a very short price to follow up his course and distance victory three weeks ago. He's always looked like a chaser in the making and should double his tally over the larger obstacles with few of the others making much appeal on what they've shown so far. Bar De Ligne is a possible exception as he's won twice in decent company over hurdles but will need to jump a lot better than he did when well behind the selection on his chasing bow.
