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.
