Martin Dwyer is aiming to return to action at the end of this week after escaping serious injury at Kempton on Saturday.

The jockey was thrown from Tiger Imp on the way to the start of the Milcars Ruislip Handicap.

He was taken to hospital for X-rays on his right forearm which revealed no fractures.

'I`m fine, it`s not broken which is quite a relief,' Dwyer said today.

'I`m not sure what I`ve done to it, it`s quite swollen and sore, but I went for X-rays last night and there are no breaks.

'Hopefully it will only take three or four days, I`m aiming to be back at the end of this week.

'I just want to make sure it`s OK because I haven`t got full strength in the arm at the moment.

'The doctor at the racecourse was sure it was broken - I thought it would be OK - but he did his job and made me go to hospital. Better safe than sorry.'

Kempton has not been a lucky track for Dwyer this season.

The rider was thrown from Texas Gold on the way to the start of a two-year-old maiden at the Sunbury course on May 1 and had to miss a few days with a neck injury.
