Verdict

A cracking renewal of the Borders National and Sandy Thomson is taken to work the oracle once again with unexposed chaser DUC DE GRISSAY who made an eye-catching return when fourth in the Durham National at Sedgefield and is expected to take a big step forward here. Last year's winner Bigirononhiship is sure to make a stout defence of his crown and rejuvenated Red Giant can also have a big say.
