Tranquil ruled out of Ryanair

Leading fancy Tranquil Sea has been ruled out of the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham on Thursday following an unsatisfactory scope.

Edward O'Grady's nine-year-old had been as short as 5-1 for the two-mile five-furlong Grade One having won both of his two starts this season.

The trainer had been thrilled with how his charge had been working at home and he admits this setback is a bitter pill to swallow.

"It's hugely disappointing but we're just not happy with the scope," said O'Grady.

"He hadn't just been working well, he'd been working brilliantly - his recent work has been better than anything he's ever done.

"I'm hopeful he'll be all right to go to Aintree."
