Antrim-born Tony and Chanelle kept watch last week as their seven-month-old son, Archie, underwent surgery at Portland Hospital in London.

"He came out of hospital on Wednesday, we have a paediatric nurse with us for a while helping me to look after him," said Chanelle, pictured, from Galway.

"Knowing that she is there and he is in good hands, I thought I would come for the day.

"It is just a case of managing the pain at the moment. The operation was very successful."

Earlier, this week the 39-year-old jockey said concern for his son's welfare had made it the most difficult build-up to a Cheltenham festival for him in 20 years.
