Geraghty to miss Galway festival

Jockey Barry Geraghty will miss the Galway Festival after breaking his arm in a fall at Market Rasen on Saturday.

The Irishman fell off his mount Cernunnos at the final fence of the Summer Plate Handicap Chase, a race won by Long House Hall.

The 36-year-old injured his right arm and will be sidelined for at least two months, and may require surgery on the fracture.

"Barry has a fractured right humerus. He'll be coming home tomorrow and will see a specialist on Monday with a view to whether he requires surgery or not for it," Irish Turf Club's senior medical officer Dr Adrian McGoldrick said.

"He'll be out for two to three months with that."

There was better news for another Irish jockey, Bryan Cooper, who suffered only bruising from his fall at Kilbeggan on Friday night.

The Gold Cup winner confirmed that he did not suffer a broken rib after his fall from Sir Raston in the second race of the night.

"I'm fine, just a bit sore," he said.
