  • Jockey Ruby Walsh was back in the saddle this afternoon (12 December) — less than a month after he had an operation to remove his ruptured spleen.

    Ruby finished 2nd on the Paul Nicholls-trained Mahonia in his return to action in the Boylesports.com “National Hunt” Novices’ Hurdle at Cheltenham — the same racecourse at which he ruptured his spleen in a fall from Pride Of Dulcote on Saturday 15 November.
