Racing: Eddery out of hospital

Pat Eddery left hospital yesterday after undergoing an operation on his back. The problems forced Eddery to bring his season to a premature close five days after notching his 4,000th career win aboard Silver Patriarch in the St Leger.

Eddery's agent, Terry Ellis, said: "Pat is really pleased with the way things have gone. The numbness has disappeared from his legs."
