Walsh has been out of action since suffering a broken leg in a fall from Let's Dance at Punchestown on November 18th, but always maintained he would be back in time for the Cheltenham Festival, where he has been leading rider 11 times.

He is scheduled to partner ante-post favourite Getabird in the Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle on Cheltenham opening day in two weeks time.
