Popham aiming for Christmas returnHeadlines
Ian Popham

Ian Popham could soon return to the saddle after breaking his pelvis for the second time in 13 months.

The promising conditional jockey sustained his latest injury when he was unshipped from the Martin Keighley-trained Oyster Hill on the way to the start for the bumper at Plumpton on October 22.

The 3lb claimer was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, from where X-rays revealed he had broken his pelvis in four places. However, he did not require surgery on this occasion as he did when he broke his pelvis in three places riding out in September 2011. He only returned to action this summer.

"He's doing really well. He was at Ascot on Saturday, he's off the crutches now and doing a bit of gym work, some swimming and started back at Oaksey House cycling 10 miles a day," said Keighley.

"His recovery is certainly quicker than last time.

"He wasn't in hospital that long. They didn't operate on him and he's back at home with his parents and he's coming on really good.

"Before he totally made a mess of his pelvis, it was all over the place and they had to rebuild it. This time he did have four fractures, but they all stayed in place.

"He's aiming to come back for Christmas or early New Year. Last time he missed a whole year. It wouldn't surprise me if he wasn't riding out before too long."
