Curtis hopes to make return

Injured jockey Ben Curtis has earmarked a return to action next week.

Ben Curtis: Ready to return

The former Irish champion apprentice rider is sidelined with a dislocated wrist and a bad gash to his right palm – an injury which required 44 stitches – after he was unseated from In The City at Thirsk on September 3.

Curtis is, however, closing in on a return to action.

He said: "I've a scar that goes three inches up to my wrist, but it's healing up nicely.

"It got infected once I first left hospital, so I had to go back in for another operation.

"But there is a bit of light at the end of the tunnel now and hopefully I can come back next week.

"I'll see how the movement is, but, with a bit of luck, I could be back in competitive action next Wednesday."
