Walsh to ride Glens Melody in Relkeel Hurdle
TRAINER Willie Mullins has confirmed Ruby Walsh will travel to Cheltenham on Saturday to partner Glens Melody in the Grade 2 Osborne House Relkeel Hurdle.
The five-year-old mare, a five-time winner over hurdles, will be Mullins' only runner on the Cheltenham card.
He said: "Glens Melody has gone to Cheltenham and Ruby is going to ride her instead of riding at Fairyhouse on Saturday."
Walsh, who is now based full-time in Ireland and has had only five rides in Britain this season, partnered the daughter of King's Theatre to victory at Punchestown last month.
