Ring escapes serious injury
Jump jockey Conor Ring was back working as normal at Evan Williams' stable on Thursday after escaping with just bumps and bruises in a fall at Newton Abbot on Wednesday.
Ring was taken to hospital for precautionary further assessment following his tumble from Serveontime at the first flight in the SIS Trading Services Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle.
He was allowed home later on Wednesday night and felt fit enough to do his duties at his boss Williams' Llancarfan base in Wales.
"They let him out of hospital late last night and he was riding out this morning," said Williams.
"It looks like he had a fair old kicking, but he's tough. I told him to have the day off, but he said he'd only be lounging around the house and he'd be happier doing a bit of work.
"He's a good lad and it's remarkable with these jump jockeys. Anybody in a normal job would have had a week off, but he's been in work this morning, slaving away.
"Obviously he has to pass all the medical procedures, but apart from being bumped and bruised, fingers crossed he'll be fine."
