Unlucky break for Heskin

Adrian Heskin could be out of action for up to eight weeks after he sustained a double fracture to an ankle.

The jumps jockey suffered the bad injury at Ballinrobe on Tuesday evening when he was unseated from Six Men Or Dooley in a two-and-a-half-mile maiden hurdle.

Heskin's agent Garry Cribbin ‏said: "He was just very unlucky. He landed on his ankle and it swelled up. He had X-rays taken straight away and they showed a double fracture. He'll need an operation, but it's a straightforward one and he'll be out for between six to eight weeks."

Cribbin added: "He'll be perfectly fine for Galway."
