Danny Tudhope faces another frustrating fortnight before having any idea when he might be able to return to the saddle.

David O'Meara's stable jockey has been sidelined since he broke his thumb when unshipped from Bond Bombshell on the way to the start, where he finished well-beaten in a five-furlong maiden at Catterick on May 29.

"It's a bit frustrating, but I've just got to grin and bear it and get on with it," he told Racing UK.

"It's my metacarpal bone in my thumb. I had an X-ray this morning and it's still not 100 per cent right so I have to keep it strapped up for another 10 days to two weeks.

"I can't really get back until it's properly healed. It's annoying and a bad time of year for it to happen.

"I've been to Jack Berry House a few times and will keep going to keep my fitness up."
