Mick Fitzgerald, who won the Grand National a month ago on Rough Quest, is out for the rest of the jumping season after breaking his collar- bone while riding out for Nicky Henderson yesterday morning. Fitzgerald will be on the sidelines for at least three weeks, and missed three rides at Ascot last night.

Richard Dunwoody gave up his mounts at Ascot after feeling ill on Monday night with food poisoning. He expects to be fit to ride at Exeter today.

n David Harrison had his appeal against a two-day ban for careless riding at Nottingham last week dismissed by the Jockey Club disciplinary committee.
