Ruby Walsh is back in the saddle on Saturday with two rides at Warwick for Paul Nicholls.

He has been sidelined since New Year’s Day when falls in successive races from Le Duc and Sporazene forced the jockey to take a break with a sore leg.

But he returns this weekend with two rides for Paul Nicholls at Warwick on Saturday and six at Leopardstown on Sunday.

“He’s 100% fine,” said agent and sister Jennifer Walsh on Friday.

“He’s got a couple for Paul Nicholls on Saurday that both have good chances (Be Be King and Eurotrek) and then he’s at Leopardstown on Sunday.”
