O'Connell bids for Thursday return

Eddie O'Connell is expected to return to action at Downpatrick on Thursday after being out through injury for the last few weeks.

The jockey injured his shoulder at Clonmel on December 6 when his mount Jack The Pirate fell heavily.

Speaking at Navan, O'Connell's agent Niall Cronin said: "Eddie had a slight crack on the AC joint of his shoulder, and is giving it a few more days. He'll be back at Downpatrick on Thursday all going well."
