CHAMPION jockey Richard Johnson, who missed the ride on Native River at Newbury on Saturday due to illness, has also given up his four rides at Exeter on Sunday.


Johnson declared himself unfit to ride at Newbury as he was suffering from flu and has been unable to shake it off. He hopes to return to the saddle as early as Tuesday.

Tom O'Brien will replace him on the first and last of his four rides, Mister Big in the 1.50 and Gala Ball in the 4.20.

Paddy Brennan will take the ride on Whatmore in the 2.20 and James Best will be aboard Fingal Bay in the 2.50.
