Ben Curtis faces three weeks on the sidelines with a wrist injury after a fall at Thirsk on Saturday.

Curtis was unshipped when the William Haggas-trained In The City suffered a fatal injury two furlongs from home in a one-mile handicap.
The jockey has undergone surgery on a dislocated wrist but is not expected to be out of action for too long.
Curtis rides principally for Brian Ellison, who said: "He'll be out for three weeks.
"He cut his hand – a really nasty gash – and he dislocated his wrist, but he had surgery on that to bang it back in.
"It looked broken at the time, but it was just dislocated.
"He's lucky, in a way, as it looked worse than it was."
