Bryony Frost Will Miss Aintree

Bryony Frost Will Miss Aintree

Bryony Frost has been ruled out of the Grand National meeting, after suffering a fractured collarbone in fall at Southwell on Monday, which could force her to miss the rest of the season.

The 23-year-old was under the spotlight last week when becoming the first female jockey to win a Grade One over jumps at Cheltenham, when she guided the Paul Nicholls-trained Frodon to victory in the Ryanair Chase.

Going into the race on Monday afternoon, Frost was seeking to make the headlines once again by bidding for her 50th winner of the campaign.

Sadly, her chances were halted early on when she fell aboard Midnight Bliss in the Toalsbet Handicap Chase at the Nottinghamshire venue, where she appeared to get to her feet without cause for concern.

However having seen specialists and been through X-rays, the fractured has been confirmed to her.

In a statement issued by Matchbook, she said: "I've been taken aback by all the support I've received since Monday. It makes you aware how many people are running with you when you hold out your hand and see who reaches out to help and pull you up.

"The racing world is an extremely caring one. Although we are all strangers within it we become a family when we need each other and that's the beauty of it.

"On Wednesday I went to see an extremely good specialist in Cardiff where my x-ray results have shown that I've fractured my clavicle.

"I suffered a fracture previously which healed well under pressure. My body's response from that fracture makes me positive for when I go back for my assessment in a fortnight's time and a swift return," she said.

The Professional Jockeys Association (PJA) suggests the average recovery time from a fractured collarbone is just over a month - 34 days to be exact, which means she will may miss the rest of the season.

Frost says she is hopeful for a swift return, and has targeted the end-of-season finale on April 27 at Sandown as her next port of call, meaning there is a chance she could recover in time to try to ride a half-century of winners.

Frodon may be heading to the Melling Chase but will be without his partner in crime, whereas Nicholls will need to recruit his other stable jockeys to ride in the big race itself.

Frost will sadly not be able to build on her creditable fifth last year aboard the Neil King-trained Milansbar, where she finished best of the British challengers.

We wish her a speedy recovery!
