JOCKEY Ruby Walsh is confident he will be fit to ride at the Cheltenham Festival in March.
Walsh is on the sidelines with a broken leg after a fall from Let's Dance at Punchestown on Sunday.
Walsh's leg does not require an operation, though, and he told Racing UK: "Hopefully it will heal quickly.
"A broken leg is usually 12 weeks, give or take - (there is) 16 weeks and three days from the fall to the Cheltenham Festival.
"I have 15 and a half (weeks), or 15 and three-quarters to be ready. I don't think it matters how much experience you have. You can only do what the doctors tell you and be as patient as you can."
