Robbie Power hopes to return to action in midweek after hurting his knee in a fall at Aintree on Sunday.

The Grand National and Cheltenham Gold Cup-winning rider was stood down for the rest of the meeting after a heavy fall from Vision Des Flos at the second fence in the Every Race Live On Racing TV Veterans’ Handicap Chase.

‘I’m fine. I’ve just got a bit of soft-tissue damage in my knee, but it feels all right,’ said Power.

‘I’ve got plenty of movement in it, just plenty of bruising. Hopefully, it will be fine in a couple of days or so.

‘I’ll see what I’m like in the morning, but hopefully it’s not too bad and I’ll be back in midweek.’
