Aspell on a liq­uid diet for the New Year

The Racing Paper - - Trends And Diary -

LEIGHTON ASPELL is fac­ing an­other spell on the side­lines af­ter surgery to re­pair in­juries to his face sus­tained in a fall at Chel­tenham ear­lier this month.

The luck­less jockey has been sur­viv­ing on liq­uids since plates were in­serted in both cheek bones and an eye socket that were dam­aged when his mount Skewiff was ham­pered and came down in a melee. Aspell, who has his own fan club, was out for four months in the sum­mer with a frac­tured ver­te­brae in his neck. He re­mains up­beat and is al­ready count­ing down the days be­fore he can ride again.
