Robbie Power hopes to return to action in midweek after hurting his knee in a fall at Aintree on Sunday.

The Gold Cup-winning rider was stood down for the rest of the meeting after taking a tumble from Vision Des Flos at the second fence in the Every Race Live On Racing TV Veterans’ Handicap Chase.

He walked gingerly into the weighing room after being brought back to the stands by ambulance.

“I’m fine. I’ve just got a bit of soft-tissue damage in my knee, but it feels all right,” said Power.

“I’ve got plenty of movement in it, just plenty of bruising. Hopefully, it will be fine in a couple of days or so.

“I’ll see what I’m like in the morning, but hopefully it’s not too bad and I’ll be back in midweek.”
