Paul Carberry today said he will be "fine" for next week's Cheltenham Festival as he recovers from an injury suffered when out hunting last month.

Carberry was stood down for a week after sustaining severe bruising to his back in the accident.

The jockey said: "I'm fine and I should be back at the weekend or next week.

"The back is good and getting better and I'll be fine for Cheltenham."

Carberry is set to ride Florida Pearl, who worked after racing at Leopardstown on Sunday, in the Tote Cheltenham Gold Cup a week on Thursday.

"I didn't see him work but I hear he went very well," Carberry added.
