Richard Johnson reported his Martell Grand National mount Star Traveller to be "very sore" today after the Henry Daly-trained gelding was pulled up lame in Saturday's Aintree showpiece.

"I was up this morning at Henry Daly's yard and saw Star Traveller.

"He's very sore, but he will have the best attention. The vet is going to see him again tomorrow and see what they can do," Johnson told the Racing Channel.

"Hopefully if he could race again he will. If he can't he'll be very well looked after."

Johnson pulled up Star Traveller approaching the 27th of the 30 fences after the nine-year-old had cut out much of the running.

The nine-year-old is believed to be suffering from a tendon injury which may have been caused by the horse striking into himself.
