ROBERT THORNTON returned to work this morning but he still continues to recover from a broken arm following a fall at Hereford last month.
Trainer Alan King welcomed the much-loved stable jockey back to the yard, but even though Choc's return to competitive action remains some time away, King was delighted to have him back in the saddle.
King said: "Choc was in this morning riding work. He actually gave Grumeti a breeze and it's great to have him back in the yard,
"He seems to be coming on well. He doesn't go back and see the specialist until early February, but it's good to have him around the place again."
