    Clan des Obeaux injured and will miss the first half of the season.

    Long term target is the Betway Bowl at Aintree.

    Apparently he suffered a broken femur when ‘Gleno’ fell in a veterans chase. He was taken to Aintree Hospital where fat leaked from the break and ended on his brain. He was critically ill & his family called to his bedside. Fortunately, he turned a corner but the recovery has been very slow.

    The article suggests he’s probably ridden his last race.
    It was touch and go for a while according to his family. It's nice to see he's making a good recovery.

    Ah sorry - before I came out of hibernation.

    I know Gallyhill went to Gordon in early July so assume he’s spread them around a bit.

    When you look at the potential for serious injury from these incidents, Freddie Tylicki comes to mind, it’s baffling 60 days at the arse end of the season is considered satisfactory, and the fact he rides in the Arc makes it worse…
    It was a disgrace and should've been a 1 year ban

    If he did that to me I'd be getting the authorities involved
