Power heads to Newbury
ROBBIE Power is availing of the elite sportsperson exemption to ride in Newbury on Sunday. The jump jockey tested negative for Covid-19 on Thursday. Should he wish, he can return to ride at Fairyhouse on Monday, when he would be given isolated changing facilities. The protocols require travelling jockeys to self-restrict other than when they are competing. Therefore, upon Power’s
return to Ireland, he will not be allowed ride out in a racing stables until he has again tested negative five days after entering the country.
