Paul Carberry has declared himself fit to partner the Gordon Elliott-trained Chicago Grey in the John Smith's Grand National at Aintree on Saturday.

The veteran pilot, who won the big race on Bobbyjo in 1999, suffered a fall at Fairyhouse on Tuesday and missed his rides at Downpatrick on Wednesday.

But he said: "There seems to have have been a big improvement so I'll be fine. I should be OK for Saturday. I'm not riding today or Friday. I think he's got a cracking chance - Gordon's horses are running ever so well at the moment."

Chicago Grey, who was brought down at the fifth in last year's renewal, heads back to Aintree after a victory in the Red Mills Chase at Navan, and Elliott said on Channel 4's The Morning Line: "Hopefully he can run a great race."
