Sam Twiston-Davies could be sidelined until Cheltenham's three-day Open meeting in November, trainer Paul Nicholls has revealed.
Twiston-Davies was stood down for the remainder of the day when he was hurt in a fall from One More Go at Chepstow on Sunday and was subsequently admitted to a hospital in Gloucester.
He is being treated for damage to his spleen and could spend up to a week in hospital for observation.
Nicholls has described the injury as a 'big blow' for Twiston-Davies and admits he could be out for up to a month as he recovers.
"He could be out until Cheltenham's big meeting in November," Nicholls told www.gloucestershirelive.co.uk.
"Whether it's that long or two weeks, we wish him a speedy recovery. When a jockey damages their spleen you have to give it a bit of time.
"It's disappointing as things have been going well. It's a big blow for Sam.
"These things happen and the sooner he's back, the better."
Cheltenham's Open meeting gets underway on November 11.
