Katie Walsh has been cleared to take part in the Randox Health Grand National this evening. 

The jockey had been a major doubt to ride Wonderful Charm in the 5.15pm at Aintree after suffering a fall, while riding Distime at The Chair in the Foxhunters' Chase on Thursday.

Following the fall, she was brought to hospital.

She had appeared to sustain a serious arm injury with fears that a fracture may have occurred. 

However, after X-rays, Walsh allayed fears over the injury and revealed that she had sustained bruising and not a broken arm.

And ahead of this evening's action, the Aintree course doctor has cleared her to take part in the race.
