Hawkeyethenoo is heading to Ascot for the QIPCO British Champions Sprint Stakes on October 20 after being stuck in the mud at Ayr last weekend.

Jim Goldie's stable star was looking to add the William Hill Ayr Gold Cup to his Stewards' Cup success on Saturday but was unsuited by the testing ground and could finish only 13th.

He has been scratched from the Betfred Challenge Cup at Ascot on Saturday week, with connections preferring to wait for the Group Two contest back at the Berkshire track.

"We've scratched him from the race at Ascot next week, but he's fine, he just couldn't go on the heavy ground the other day and the plan is to wait for the Group Two at Ascot on Champions Day with him," the trainer said.
