Lynch: Arm injury at Navan
Lynch: Arm injury at Navan

Jockey Andrew Lynch expects to be fit for the Cheltenham Festival.

Lynch sustained an arm injury at Navan on Saturday and was still in some pain 24 hours later when signing off after just one ride at the Dublin circuit.

The Irish jockey has some huge rides at Cheltenham next week, including Sizing Europe in the Champion Chase and Rubi Light in the Ryanair Chase, but does not anticipate any fitness concerns.

He said: "It (the arm) is grand, thankfully, and I'll be OK.

"My arm just got a bit choked up when I pulled up (at Leopardstown), so I thought I'd better take it steady.

"It's such an important time of the year and you can't take any risks.

"Hopefully we'll be fine for Cheltenham."
