For anticipated champion jockey Silvestre de Sousa will be.
De Sousa had been hurt in a fall at Chelmsford and at one stage it seemed he could return in time for the St Leger meeting of next week at Doncaster.
However, the Brazilian is targeting Champions Day at Ascot as a comeback that is likely.
“There has been a little bit of confusion regarding the size of my accident and when I will return riding, so I would just like to clear a number of this up,” he wrote in his site to get Star Sports.
“I can confirm there was a small fracture into my collar bone in addition to a very small chip to one of these bones in my neck.
“All of that, along with a lot of bruising (my lower back is sore), signifies there is no possibility of me returning to journey at next week’s St Leger meeting.
“My goal remains to be back riding in that first week of October ahead of Champions Day.
“I have already begun the rehabilitation process and have been in Peter O’Sullevan House here at Newmarket three times this week.
“It’s about rebuilding the tissue and building up my strength along with also the hydro pool is excellent for that.
“I will continue to move there every day today and expect to try to get back to a horse in a few weeks or so.
“In my head, I’d like to try to be work riding at least three weeks from today – that is the hope anyway.”
