REGAL Encore, trained by Anthony Honeyball, and Walk In The Mill, trained by Robert Walford, have been ruled out of the Randox Health Grand National at Aintree today.

The former, owned by JP McManus, must miss out as a blood analysis taken from the 10-year-old was found to have been abnormal.

Walk In The Mill was third reserve for the Grand National but sneaked
into the race 11 minutes before Friday's 1pm cut-off point after Beeves
was declared a non-runner.

Trainer Walford's dreams have now gone up in smoke, though, as
the Baroness Harding-owned eight-year-old is lame.

Dorset still has one horse among the 38 horses who will now go to post for the big race, with Colin Tizzard's The Dutchman entered with odds of 20/1 (5.15pm).
