Thornton back at Stratford
Robert Thornton gets back to business after six months on the sidelines when he partners Letsby Avenue at Stratford on Tuesday.
Thornton has been out of action since breaking his right arm in a fall when riding Our Phylli Vera for his boss Alan King in a two-mile handicap hurdle at Southwell on March 4.
At first, his injuries were not thought to be serious and he was expected to be in action at Exeter the following day, but he underwent tests which revealed the extent of his problem.
King reports Thornton to be keen to get started on Letsby Avenue in the At The Races On Facebook Handicap Hurdle at the Warwickshire track.
"He has been back riding out for a few weeks now and is raring to get started again," the Barbury Castle trainer told www.alankingracing.co.uk.
