Dual Boot Corrupted

Whilst investigating some software yesterday I annoyingly and mistakenly changed the Grub2 boot options for my PC so that it wouldn't boot at all.

After some time I managed to get it back to the point where I can boot into W10 but my Ubuntu boot option (through Windows 10 MBR) doesn't exist or rather points to a non existent file.

EasyBCD shows the the boot options as below

There are a total of 2 entries listed in the bootloader.

Default: Windows 10
Timeout: 17 seconds
Boot Drive: D:\

Entry #1
Name: Windows 10
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \WINDOWS\system32\winload.exe

Entry #2
Name: Grub 2 For Windows
BCD ID: {a0ffb549-1824-11e9-8ad8-8236e31b4d39}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \grub2\g2bootmgr\gnugrub.kernel.bios

Having messed things up yesterday I am loathe just to go blindly ahead in case I mess things up agaiin.

I would appreciate help in getting my Ubuntu boot option back.

I don't want to reinstall Ubuntu as I have it setup to use with x-plane 11 and it took some effort to get it working properly thanks to x-plane 11 Linux users help.
