DAVY Russell will be back in the saddle for one ride at Cork tomorrow - just a week after puncturing a lung at the Cheltenham Festival.

Ireland's champion National Hunt jockey partnered Lord Windermere to win last Wednesday's RSA Chase, but suffered a heavy final-flight fall from Un Beau Matin in the Coral Cup later in the afternoon.

 

Although he returned to action the following day, Russell had to be taken to Cheltenham General Hospital for treatment after two rides, when it was revealed he had sustained a punctured lung.

 

Russell said: "All went well with the doctor and he's happy enough for me to go and ride away now.

 

"I've just the one ride, so hopefully all goes well and we can kick on from there."

 

Russell said on Monday there were "a couple of niggling things that need to be sorted out".

 

He has decided any further treatment will now wait until after the Punchestown Festival.
