Weekly Review: Maxse curses Impossible run of luck on return from injury.
JOCKEY Club publicity officer John Maxse made his comeback in the saddle at Charing, nine months after breaking his leg when a horse ducked through the ring at Hackwood.
Riding Impossible Quick, an ex-Irish eight-year-old trained by his mother Sue, Maxse led his rivals at a good clip and was 20 lengths clear of favourite Belvento when overwhelmed by a sense of deja vu.
Impossible Quick, who had been jumping right, suddenly veered into the wing at the third-last. Maxse was uninjured, but said yesterday: "I'm afraid the horse sustained a very bad cut to his off-fore tendon, which was probably why he was hanging. The vets say he has only a one-in-three chance of racing again. He was the only horse we have at home-I cannot believe my luck at the moment."
