  • Jockey Jason Maguire has returned to the saddle after his near-fatal fall in March, after which he had to have part of his liver removed.

    The 33-year-old fell from Scots Gaelic at Stratford (10 March) and was kicked in the abdomen by another horse.

    He fractured his sternum and had bleeding on his liver so was put into an induced coma and operated on.

    Jason is now back riding out for trainer Donald McCain and is aiming to be race-riding by October.

    Daryl Jacob is also back in action after a freak accident at the Cheltenham Festival in which he broke his arm, elbow and knee. His mount, Port Melon, spooked and threw the jockey onto a television camera.

    He’s now recovered and had a winning double at Market Rasen on Saturday (30 August).

    “It’s great to be back,” he said.
