Bryony Frost Could Be Set For Sandown Return

Leading female jockey Bryony Frost could return to action at Sandown this weekend after fracturing her Collarbone back in March in a nasty fall at Southwell.

The 24 year old rider is set to get back in the saddle on the Paul Nicholls trained Present Man on who she rode to victory back at the start of the season at Wincanton in the Badger Ales Listed Handicap Chase.

Present Man is one of five possible horses the 10 time champion trainer could run in the bet365 Gold Cup with a prize of £150,000 on offer to the winner of the race.

Bryony Frost has had a memorable season to date and will be looking to finish it off in style when sitting on the nine year old gelding who she has been aboard all eight of the horses victories in is career.

Frost has changed things for the better in the sport by highlighting the skill and achievements of female jockeys within the sport an really changed the opinion on woman within the sport making a lot of people accept them to be as good as male riders.

Frost became the first female jockey to win a Grade 1 race over fences at this seasons Cheltenham festival when landing the Ryanair Chase on board Frodon.

With this achievement, she is also on course to be this seasons champion conditional rider, which again is a huge accolade for the 24 year old and her being back riding before picking up her trophy is the cherry on top.

Sandown is set to show off its feature card of the year whilst also giving jumps racing fans in the UK the last big meeting of the season with Irish jumps racing finishing just a week later with the Punchestown festival.
