The Kildare native fell on Let’s Dance at Punchestown leading to the injury but his timeline still has a positive look about it

“I’ve been riding a couple of horses each day, I started that on Sunday when I rode out one at home so it’s tipping along and hopefully it keeps going the way it’s going,” Walsh told Racing UK.

“It feels good. I’ll just take it slowly slowly, try not to do any damage and we’ll see how we go.

“There’s a buzz about the yard, things are just about to start cranking up. The horses are in good form and hopefully it keeps going that way.”

Walsh can expect to have great book of rides for the highlight of the season as Un De Sceaux, Min, Getabird, Next Destination, Laurina and Al Boum Photo all have big chances in some of the major races.
