Ruby Walsh is expected to return to action by the end of the week after suffering a crashing fall from Sporazene at Cheltenham on Sunday.

The 26-year-old was stood down for the remainder of the card after the nasty-looking incident, which was his second tumble of the day after he parted company with Le Duc in the third race.

“He is OK and hopes to be back by the end of the week, although I don’t know where yet,” said his sister and agent Jennifer.

“He is just a little sore today, which you would expect after two hard falls.”
