Cleary on the sidelines.
RORY CLEARY has been stood down for three weeks by Turf Club medical officer Dr Walter Halley after being badly concussed in a fall at Tramore on Friday night, writes Tony O'Hehir. Cleary's mount, Shaunas Vision, came down on a bend after about two furlongs of the mile-and-a-half handicap, having appeared to clip the heels of another horse.
The jockey was taken to Waterford Regional Hospital and yesterday Dr Halley said: ``Rory's x-rays were clear and he's due to be released later today. He was quite severely concussed and is stood down for 21 days.''
Also due to be released from the same hospital last night was Cathy Gannon, who needed stitches in a forehead wound following a fall at Tramore on Thursday.
Jump jockey John Cullen was stood down for seven days after aggravating the shoulder injury he picked up at the Galway Festival while riding at Tramore on Friday.
