William Buick got back in the saddle on Friday after a lengthy time out of the sport and he is now looking to make up for that lost time by finishing the season strongly and trying to pick up as many rides and wins as possible.
The jockey picked up post head injury syndrome when falling off his ride on the way to post at Ascot back in mid May and only got back on track at the end of last week which has seen him miss out on some big rides and big festivals.
The Norwegian rider picked up from where he left off though when having two rides at Newmarket on Friday evening and in his first of the evening getting off the mark on board Charlie Appleby's Lazuli who looks a very nice two year old.
The jockey was back in the winners enclosure again on Saturday at Newmarket when riding for Mark Johnston with Rose Of Kildare finishing in a dead-heat.
As ever there is no rest for a jockey and Buick was put back into the thick of things straight away and was sent over to France and finished a good third with Space Blues in the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest.
Buick is trying look forward and not behind him in the past and now wants to focus on what is left of the flat season in Britain with options for him after the flat season has finished to go abroad, most likely to the UAE where Godolphin hold a lot of their runners.

The rider will have more opportunities to add to his two comeback winners when riding on Wednesday evening with two rides for Appleby and Godolphin at Kempton, before possible outings at Newmarket and Sandown later in the week.
