Carberry targets swift return

Paul Carberry is likely to take a week off to recover from bruised ribs he sustained in a fall at Fairyhouse on Easter Monday.

The jockey took a tumble from Silver Tassie at the third-last fence in the Rathberry & Glenview Studs Handicap Hurdle.

It meant he missed the ride on Mullaghanoe River, which also fell, in the Boylesports Irish Grand National later on the card.

Carberry is likely to target the five-day Punchestown Festival, which starts next Tuesday, for his return to the track.

"He's not riding today (at Ballinrobe) and he'll probably have the week off," said his agent Ciaran O'Toole.

"I'd say he'd start back at Punchestown next Tuesday. We'll just see how he is."
