Harry The Viking

Paul Nicholls, looking to follow up the victory of Neptune Collonges, named the seven year old among the entries for the £180,000 race at Ayr Racecourse on Saturday April 21.

And with Manchester United not in action until the following day against Everton, Fergie may well be at Ayr to cheer on his horse.

David Pipe's Junior had his whole season built around the John Smith's Grand National but came down at the second fence and would carry top weight at Ayr.

West End Rocker, another early Aintree casualty, is also still in the mix for Alan King, who could also run the novice Walkon. Benny Be Good, Knockara Beau, Fruity O'Rooney and Galaxy Rock are also towards the head of the weights.

Matt Sheppard's Ikorodu Road, winner of two decent races recently, is another leading fancy to stand his ground. Lie Forrit, 2010 winner Merigo and Eider Chase victor Portrait King are also among the 35 left in.
