Josh Bryan 'recovering at home' after Chelmsford fall

Fri 3 Nov 2017

Apprentice rider Josh Bryan appears to have escaped serious injury after suffering a heavy fall at Chelmsford on Thursday evening.

The 5lb claimer was partnering the William Stone-trained Hidden Stash in the concluding seven-furlong handicap at the Essex venue when his saddle slipped and he was unshipped.

Bryan was taken to a nearby hospital for further assessment, but returned home in the early hours of Friday morning.

The rider's agent Guy Jewell said: "He's got a badly bruised wrist and ribs, but they let him out of hospital at 3am and he's now recovering at home.

"It did look awful at the time, but thankfully it looks like it's just bad bruising.

"He'll get through the weekend and see how he feels after that."

Bryan, who is apprenticed to Andrew Balding, has ridden 30 winners this year, taking his total tally to 37.
