Meath jockey Barry Geraghty is likely to be out of action for at least a week following a fall at Killarney on Saturday.

Wonderoftheworld and Denis O'Regan fell at the last bringing down Geraghty and Cook Islands, Geraghty wwas stood down for the rest of the card.

"Barry is very sore. Nothing is broken. He has soft tissue injuries to his back and right shoulder, so he'll probably take a week off," said Turf Club senior medical officer Dr Adrian McGoldrick today.

Geraghty only returned to action at the Galway Festival after being off since April with a broken arm that he sustained in a fall from Minella Foru in the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse.

He also missed this year's Cheltenham Festival when suffering lung and rib injuries in a fall at Kempton in February. He also broke his other arm in a fall at Market Rasen in July 2016.
