Sam Twiston-Davies had to settle for second place on Southport on his comeback from injury at Ffos Las.

Sam Twiston-Davies: Second on return

Paul Nicholls' stable jockey had to give way to Charlie Deutsch on Super Sam in the Finings Handicap Hurdle.

Twiston-Davies teamed up with his father, Nigel, on his only ride of the day after being sidelined for seven and a half weeks with a damaged spleen.

He settled Southport in midfield as Time For Champers set the pace until Super Sam went on before the third last.

Twiston-Davies did his best to cover the move but Super Sam (10-11 favourite), trained by Venetia Williams, was too strong and went on to get the verdict by a length and a half to follow up his victory at Hereford a week ago.

"I'm not blowing so that's good. To be fair I had a great ride. He was perfect for a first ride back," Twiston-Davies told At The Races.

"He jumped, he travelled. I had to push him a little bit, but at the same time I felt comfortable doing so."
