The first race of the day at Ayr is the Scotty Brand Listed Handicap Chase and we are giving Grand Sancy one last chance in this event.
The seven year old has been hit and miss over fences this term, but over the last few years has shown serious ability over both hurdles and fences.
Over hurdles his best performance came on his final start over timber in November 2019 when winning the Grade Two Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton.
Since going over fences, he had ran behind some nice horses in good races and finally got off the mark at the back end of last season at Fontwell.
He backed that up on his seasonal debut this term when winning a three runner Listed event at Chepstow by 13 lengths, with Paint The Dream going on to frank the form.
However, since then he has slightly lost his way running in Grade Two and Three events and fading in the latter stages over 2m4f.
On Sunday he drops back in trip to just over two miles and it should hopefully spark a resurgence in form and at 9/2 agains the soft favourite we are willing to find out if it does.
