He is making good progress and hopes to be firing on all cylinders for the start of the turf Flat season.

He told "My last scan in December was good. I still have a boot on the foot and will get a follow-up scan and meet the specialist again next week.

"All being well after that, the plan is to lose the boot and I can increase my rehabilitation programme at Oaksey House. I hope to get back riding out for Ralph in early February and be race-riding again by the end of the that month. It would mean I'm fully ready for the start of the turf season."
