Jockey Tom Buckley faces a prolonged spell on the sidelines after being knocked out at Plumpton on Monday in a nasty fall from Glass Of Bubbles.

The partnership got here to grief on the fourth flight of the opening maiden hurdle when the Charlie Longsdon-trained filly seemed to be blinded by the low solar within the straight, stepping on the hurdle and falling awkwardly in an incident which sadly claimed her life.

Buckley was unconscious for a number of minutes earlier than coming spherical and being assessed by the monitor’s medical employees.

He was later pushed house by rider William Kennedy. ‘I’m not blaming anybody as incidents like that may occur in racing,’ stated Longsdon. 

‘Nonetheless, it doesn’t paint the game in a superb mild. She guessed on the flight and jumped it like she was a novice with the solar in her eyes. I’m simply grateful Tom is OK.’

The incident clearly rang alarm bells as there have been simply two hurdles jumped due to the low solar within the ensuing novices’ hurdle wherein 1-8 favorite African Dance beat simply two rivals.
