In what will be a busy first day for the Irish jockey, Walsh will be aboard Douvan in the Arkle Chase just 40 minutes later.
Completing a hat-trick races for the Kildare man, Walsh will look to have better luck with Annie Power after last year’s disappointment and the Mullins’s mare is favourite to win the Champion Hurdle.
