Mark Rimmer returned home from hospital yesterday and admitted he "can't remember much" about his horrific fall at Warwick. But he revealed that he suffered no worse than bruising in yesterday's three-horse pile- up and is looking forward to a return to race-riding.

"I can't remember much about the fall," Rimmer said after arriving at his Newmarket home yesterday afternoon. "The horse just went from under me and that was that. I'm badly bruised but thankfully I am in one piece."

Rimmer, who will talk to Dr Michael Turner this morning about his return, added: "I would like to thank everyone for their kind messages of support."

There had been fears that the jockey had suffered serious injury as he crashed to the ground from the fatally-injured Irish Fiction at Warwick. Although detained overnight in South Warwickshire Hospital, he was released this morning.
