Moore set for Newmarket return


Ryan Moore will return to the saddle at Newmarket on Friday.

Moore has not ridden since partnering Alice Springs in the Prix Rothschild at Deauville on July 31 as he took some time away from the saddle to recovery from an unspecified injury.

The former champion jockey took a break on the advice of a specialist to ensure he is fit for the busy autumn schedule and he will make his return aboard the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Spatial in the Stride By TRM EBF Stallions Maiden Fillies' Stakes.

"I'm pleased to say that I will be back riding at Newmarket on Friday. I am on Spatial in the opening race," Moore wrote in his Betfair column.

"I have been riding out for a couple of weeks, but it made sense to give the injury time to completely settle and heal before I started race-riding.

"There was simply no point in rushing back, with such a busy autumn campaign both domestically and internationally, and I have been having physio every day and generally keeping myself busy.

"It seems a long while since I rode Alice Springs in the Rothschild at the end of last month, but I am obviously very happy to be back."
