Removing alkyd paint

A friend of mine has stained some oil primed lined canvases with a burnt umber/titanium white W&N Griffin (alkyd) mix, but unfortunately put too much of a thick layer on (being used to non oil primed canvas).

Is there any solvent or chemical which would strip away the alkyd paint without damaging the primer?
