CHAMPION jockey Richard Hughes still has no comeback date in mind after his nasty fall at Meydan on Saturday.

The Wiltshire-based rider was riding Mars for Mike de Kock in the Sheema Classic when his mount crashed through a rail in the early stages.

Hughes suffered a fractured vertebra in the incident, but was full of praise for the treatment he received on track.

He tweeted: "Flying home today, no come back date yet just thankful it wasn't worse.

"If you ever get hurt riding @DRC_Meydan is the best place looked after first class can't thank them enough."
