Walsh thrilled with Seabass run

Katie Walsh was thrilled to finish third in the John Smith's Grand National on her trainer-father Ted's horse Seabass as she became the highest-placed woman rider in the history of the great race.

Seabass looked to hold a great chance entering the closing stages, but he didn't quite last home as well as the two who beat him, Neptune Collonges and Sunnyhillboy.

Walsh said: "I had an unbelievable spin. It was a fantastic experience. It was great to get round. I can't believe it's all over and I can't wait to do it again. At the third-last I was going OK, but after the second-last I didn't think I was going to win."
