Ruby Walsh is hoping to return to action in September after suffering a crushed vertebrae in a fall at Killarney.
The former champion jump jockey incurred the injury on July 12 and has been absent since then.
“I’ve had my fair share of serious injuries over the past few years,” said Walsh.
“They say they come in threes, so hopefully that’s it for me. I hope to have the brace off in four to six weeks and then, after a bit of physio, I should be ready to go.”
