Derek Fox is thrilled to make his competitive comeback at Carlisle, just three days before taking the ride on One For Arthur in the Grand National.
The 24-year-old has been sidelined by injury since suffering a fall at Carlisle on March 9, but returns to the saddle with two rides at the Cumbria circuit on Wednesday.
Fox said: “I’m 100 per cent sound and I’m just looking forward to getting back now.
“I schooled One For Arthur (on Tuesday) and he went really well. Lucinda was delighted with him.
“He definitely goes there with a big chance and you just have to hope you get a bit of luck on the day and everything goes well.
“It would be incredible to win it.”

Aintree clerk of the course Andrew Tulloch is not ruling out watering the National course ahead of the big day.
He said: “The Grand National course is mostly good to soft. There is a bit of soft ground by the Canal Turn – it is always a bit easier down there.
“Going down to Becher’s there is a bit of good about it. The ground is just drying out a bit each day.
“We will keep any eye on it and will put a bit of water on if we need to maintain conditions on the easier side of good.”
La Vaticane is currently the 40th and final horse guaranteed a run.
The four reserves, as things stand, are Doctor Harper, Bless The Wings, Knock House and Sambremont respectively.
