Adrian Maguire's miserable season continued last night when Michael Foy, specialist at the Ridgeway Hospital, Swindon, advised the jockey to wait for a further three weeks before resuming race-riding.

The news is another blow to Maguire, who has been knocked out of several major meetings over the past couple of seasons, most notably, recently missing his second successive Cheltenham Festival.

His latest injury was a broken collar bone incurred at Newbury on 1 March. Last night he said: "Michael has said that the bone has only healed between 30 and 40 per cent.''
