Walsh undecided on National mount

Ruby Walsh has yet to decide which horse he will ride in next week's Crabbie's Grand National.

Willie Mullins still has Sir Des Champs, Ballycasey, Turban, Boston Bob and On His Own in the Aintree marathon and as the trainers stable jockey Walsh must choose between the five potential runners.

Walsh has already won the famous race on two occasions but he admits Mullins' quintet must be considered to be 'longshots'.

"We have five in it. Sir Des Champs is Gigginstown's so I don't know what Bryan (Cooper) is doing," Walsh told At The Races.

"We've Ballycasey, Turban, Boston Bob and On His Own. I'd imagine Patrick (Mullins) will ride On His Own.

"They are five long-shots and any of them, on their best day, could run a big race, but whether their best days are behind them or not now is questionable."

Mullins is planning to send a large string to Aintree as he targets the trainers' title and Walsh has paid tribute to the County Carlow handler for all he has achieved this season.

"Even to be in with a chance of winning it is incredible and you've seen how much money he has amassed here in Ireland as well," Walsh said. "He is a brilliant trainer, he's a gentleman to work for and it would be a massive achievement, but he's very good at putting his horses in the right races.

"Doing that is a huge thing and Willie is brilliant at it."
