Milansbar has National aim
Neil King would like to aim Milansbar at the Randox Health Grand National next April.
Milansbar: Grand National aim
Second in the Midlands National last season, he found the ground too fast when ninth in the Scottish version.
His liking for soft ground may force King to alter plans at some stage, but Aintree is the target all being well.
"Milansbar has summered well but is some way off a run," said King.
"Given he likes soft ground, there was no point getting him ready early.
"His long-term plan is the Grand National but whether he'll get his ground is another thing.
"Obviously races like the Welsh National and the Midlands National, in which he was second last year, will come under consideration, too.
"He didn't run a bad race at Ayr,
but as soon as I got there I knew the ground was too quick."
