Priestley not expecting Anderson to figure at World Grand Prix: "He's at the end of his tether with darts"

Former two-time World Champion Dennis Priestley spoke to BoyleSports ahead of the World Grand Prix which is scheduled for October 3-9 in Leicester.

'The Menace' finds it difficult to pick a favourite but has a few names in mind.

"It's not like when I was playing when you could really pick a winner but it'll be one of the favourites. You can't discard Michael van Gerwen or Michael Smith. Dave Chisnall also comes into the discussion now too after winning the Belgian Open," said Priestley to BoyleSports Darts Betting.

"I think Peter Wright will probably win it because it's one on his CV that he is yet to win."

But one player he is ruling out is another Scot in Gary Anderson who faces Van Gerwen in the opening round.

"I could rule Gary Anderson out of winning it I'm afraid. I think he's at the end of his tether with darts.

What does Priestley think is the most attractive first-round tie? "There are quite a few tasty games here. We're looking at Dimitri van den Bergh against Dave Chisnall - it's not a bad game, that," he continued.

"Joe Cullen against Damon Heta, who is very steady and a very good player. That will be a cracking game. Rob Cross v Daryl Gurney will be a cracker. There are some beauties."
