Richard Johnson is looking forward to returning to action with two rides at Ludlow on Wednesday after being sidelined with concussion since Boxing Day.
The champion jockey got the all-clear after taking mandatory tests on Monday, seven days after his tumble from Grey Gold at Wetherby.
It will be a low-profile comeback, with rides on Look My Way for John Quinn in the Best Wishes For 2018 Juvenile Hurdle and Victarion for Philip Hobbs in the Jubilee Restaurant Maiden Hurdle.
Johnson said: "All is good for me to go tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it,
"Dave (Roberts, agent) has got me two decent rides at Ludlow and I'll take it from there."
Johnson is particularly excited at the prospect of riding the Hobbs-trained Rock The Kasbah in the rearranged Coral Welsh Grand National at Chepstow on Saturday.
He would have missed the mount had the weather not caused the abandonment of the meeting on its original date last week.
"Fingers crossed Chepstow beats the weather this time. It's a nice big race to look forward to," said Johnson.
"It's nice to be back and to be busy again, hopefully."
