William Buick Unsure About Return To Action

Godolphin's number one rider William Buick has been out of action for some time now but was at Royal Ascot yesterday to see Charlie Appleby's superstar sprinter Blue Point take back to back Group 1 King's Stands Stakes.

The rider had to watch James Doyle take the saddle in his spot which must have been agonising for the Norwegian rider but the jockey was happy to be back amongst things and did not label a specific date when he would be returning from his injury.

The 30 year old has been off the track since May 11th with post head-injury syndrome that he picked up after falling from his horse on the way to the start at Ascot.

It was good to see that Buick could offer a positive update on his condition after it being in any sport, one of the worst things about the job being injured and not able to do something you love.

However, he was over the moon with Godolphin's first day at the Royal meeting and shared a big hug with trainer Charlie Appleby when Blue Point crossed the line in first place.

(Credit Racing Post) He said: "I feel good and I've been getting out a good bit to the gym and to the yard. I'm delighted to be here, although it's different to what I'm used to.

"Charlie kindly asked me to come along and help out and it's good to be able to come here and support the team."

Throughout the day there was a constant reminder to Buick how much he is respected and loved within the sport with leading figures coming over to see how the rider is recovering.

The jockey is now concentrating in getting back fully fit and not rushing his return to action with a medical assessment needed before he does get back in the saddle.

Buick added: "It's been so nice to have as many well wishers as I've had; it really means a lot to me.

"I don't know yet [when I'll be back] and I don't want to put a date on it. I have to see the doctors and see what they think before coming back."
