Jockey Gavin Sheehan faces a spell on the sidelines

The jockey was riding Rock Of Leon in the second race on the card, the novices' limited handicap chase, when his mount jinked left and unseated his partner soon after the first fence.

Sheehan rode in the following contest, finishing fourth on Yanmare in the Mandarin Handicap Chase, but stood himself down soon afterwards.

"I'm not sure how long he'll be out for but it will be for a few weeks."
