Scudamore targets weekend return

Thistlecrack's jockey Tom Scudamore expects to be sidelined for a couple of days as he recuperates from a bad fall at Plumpton on Monday.

Tom Scudamore could have a short break

Scudamore was on Bobbits Way for Alan Jones in an extended two-mile handicap chase when he fell at the 11th fence.

He was supposed to be in action at Bangor this afternoon for his boss David Pipe, but those mounts have now been taken by David Noonan.

"I'll probably just have a couple of days off," said Scudamore, who won last week's King George VI Chase on Colin Tizzard's superstar Thistlecrack.

"I'll get some physio later and see how it is.

"It was a bad fall but it's just bruising and it's a matter of how quick the swelling goes down. It will be days, not weeks.

"I'll definitely be back for the weekend I'd have thought.

"It's been flat out for a week or so, so I suppose I'll finally get the chance to reflect on it all."
