Easy Aintree winner Edgardo Sol could bid for a quick follow up in the Isle of Skye Blended Whisky Scottish Champion Hurdle at Ayr on Saturday.

Paul Nicholls' five-year-old won impressively over fences on Thursday at Aintree in the Grade 3 Red Rum Handicap Chase but has spent the best part of the season racing over timber.

The champion trainer could also run Ted Spread.

Nicky Henderson has three entries in the novices All The Aces and Tetlami, and Petit Robin, who has only had two runs since December 2010 due to injury.

Donald McCain also has two entries in Desert Cry and Red Merlin, while Alan King may run Ladbroke winner Raya Star.

Clerk's Choice, Local Hero, Megastar and Charm School complete the 12 possibles.
