Graham Lee has been given the go-ahead to ride Kilbeggan Blade in the John Smith’s Grand National.
Lee, a winner of the National aboard Amberleigh House in 2004, this morning received clearance from medical staff to partner Tom George’s 10-year-old.
The rider, who also teams up with Kalahari King in the John Smith’s Maghull Novices’ Chase, was a doubt for the race after suffering a fall at Wetherby on Tuesday.
“There are no problems and he’s fit to ride,” said George.
“Graham’s feeling fine and as long as he’s happy, I’m happy.”
