William Buick is set to make his long-awaited return to the saddle with two rides at Newmarket on Friday evening.
Buick, who was unshipped from Sir Busker on the way to post at Ascot on May 10, has been out of action since partnering the Charlie Appleby-trained two-year-old newcomer Expressionist to victory at the same track 24 hours later.
He missed his intended mounts in France the next day after reportedly feeling unwell.
The 31-year-old, retained by Sheikh Mohammed’s Godolphin operation, subsequently spent some time at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge – where he underwent tests.
Buick will make his comeback aboard Appleby’s newcomer Lazuli in the Unibet British EBF Novice Stakes before riding his stablemate Art Song – a winner on his only previous start at Kempton last October – in the 32Red Novice Stakes.
