Good luck to Davy Condon who is facing neck surgery this month as he continues his long recovery from injuries sustained in a fall at Cork in August.

You may recall that Davy had no movement in his legs for 10 scary minutes after that fall from Flaxen Flare but thankfully he had ‘only’ suffered multiple vertebrae fractures. However, Davy told the Irish Independent’s Richard Forristal this week that a scan has revealed further damage to discs in his neck and it requires an operation. There is a chance Davy could be passed fit to ride by Christmas and we look forward to welcoming him back as soon as possible.
