Walsh eyes February return

Ruby Walsh has targeted a return to the saddle next month as he continues to recuperate from a double fracture of his right leg.

Walsh suffered the injury when coming to grief on Corrick Bridge at Down Royal on November 6 - just over an hour after having partnered Kauto Star to victory in the Champion Chase.

Walsh told the Morning Line on Channel 4: "It's going slowly, but it's getting there. Hopefully I'll be back by the middle to the end of February."
