Monty blow for Katie Walsh
Willie Mullins has expressed disappointment for jockey Katie Walsh after Our Monty was ruled out of the John Smith's Grand National with a leg infection.
The eight-year-old gelding had crept into the field at the bottom of the weights, but will now be sidelined for the Aintree contest. A big-priced outsider, Our Monty was due to be Walsh's first ride in the race.
Mullins told the Telegraph: "I'm disappointed for the owners, and for Katie, that this should have happened on the eve of the National."
