Walsh third on injury return

Ruby Walsh had to settle for third place as he made his return from injury aboard Hail Caesar at Roscommon.

Sidelined by a broken arm for over four months, Walsh got the leg up aboard the 8-11 favourite, who is trained by his father Ted, in the Owen Dervin & Sons Hurdle.

However, after racing a little keenly early on, Walsh's mount had little left to give in the closing stages and plugged on to claim minor honours.

"The horse was too keen. It would have been better to drop him out or go on, but it's good to be back," said Walsh.

"It was fairly serious, breaking my humerus in three places - it's not a good injury. But I'm getting used to dealing with frustration."
