Bohan released from hospital.

Byline: Graham Green

JOCKEY Paul Bohan, who suffered a crushed vertebra in a fall at Kempton on Saturday, has been discharged from St Peter's Hospital in Chertsey after being informed he will not require surgery, writes Graham Green.

Instead the 22-year-old conditional rider, who received a heavy kick to the back when parting company with Laterly in a handicap hurdle, will attend the spinal unit at St George's Hospital in Tooting today to arrange some physiotherapy sessions.

Bohan, who works for Steve Gollings and is facing a minimum of six weeks on the sidelines, said: "The T7 vertebra is right in the middle of the shoulderblades and is too low for a neck collar and too high up for a brace, so it is up to me to keep myself supported and not do anything silly.

"The doctors have warned me that if I don't look after this then I won't be a jump jockey for much longer."
