Geraghty waiting for comeback

Top jumps jockey Barry Geraghty hopes to return to action in about a week's time after delaying his comeback from injury.

Barry Geraghty: Trying to get race-fit again.

Geraghty will miss several good rides over the weekend, including Hargam at Tipperary on Sunday for his boss JP McManus, but felt it wise just to wait a little longer.

The Irish jump jockey suffered a double fracture to his right humerus in a crashing fall from Cernunnos at the final fence in the Betfred Summer Plate at Market Rasen in July.

He is back riding out and schooling over jumps and has been receiving physio.

"I thought I might just give it another week to strengthen up," said Geraghty.

"The arm's doing fine. I had physio this morning and have been working away. I'm doing plenty with weights and that, but I just thought I'd give it a bit more time.

"Hopefully I'll look at next weekend. I'll see how it is during the week.

"I've been schooling over fences and hurdles. It's good, but I just need to get it race-ready."
