SAM TWISTON-DAVIES is targeting Cheltenham's Open meeting next month after being released from hospital following a week of treatment for a bruised spleen and kidneys.

He sustained his injuries in a fall on One More Go at Chepstow on October 9, with the jockey admitting himself to hospital later that day.

Stable jockey to Paul Nicholls, Twiston-Davies was enjoying his freedom on Wednesday, having being confined to watching racing on the television from his hospital bed and hopes to be back in action for Cheltenham's three-day meeting starting November 11.

"The recovery is going really well," said the rider. "I will be in Oaksey House next Monday where we'll establish a fitness regime, but I'm happy to be out and about doing things.

"I'll work towards coming back a few days before Cheltenham, which will get me back in the routine before the weekend."

After making a flying start to the season, with 70 winners already on the board, Twiston-Davies trailed defending champion Richard Johnson by 18 in the Stobart Jump Jockeys' Championship before racing on Wednesday.
