Jonothan Lower will become the first diagnosed diabetic to ride in Britain when he partners Totally Yours at Wincanton today. The jump jockey, who won a long battle with the Jockey Club to allow him to ride despite his condition, was about to resume riding in October when he suffered a broken leg in an accident on Martin Pipe's gallops. An intended return to action last month was put off as he was not happy with his fitness.
