Ayr on Eduard agenda

Eduard is likely to be re-routed to Ayr next week after trainer Nicky Richards decided not to declare him at Doncaster.

A two-mile novice chase at the Scottish venue is where Eduard is likely to be seen next after he was taken out of the Betdaq Free Premier League Game Saturdays Novices' Chase.

The highly-regarded six-year-old, who has not been since getting off the mark over fences at Carlisle at the beginning of December, could be headed for the Crabbie's Grand National meeting at Aintree in April.

"Everything's fine. He's probably going to go to Ayr next Friday. That's my plan with him," said Richards.
