Weekly Review: Maxse curses Impossible run of luck on return from injury.

Byline: Hugh Condry

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."
