Battered Marshall will race
JOCKEY John Marshall left Happy Valley last night nursing a bruised and swollen wrist but declared himself fully fit for action at Sha Tin's big Centurion Trophy meeting on Saturday. Marshall was trapped in the barrier when Jogador broke through prior to the final event and was then withdrawn. The Australian rider, who had won on Natural Colour in the third event, said: ''My wrist was caught at the side of the gate when he went through without me.
It is bruised but I have already had it checked and I am quite all right. ''But I won't be riding trackwork in the morning, I'm just going to give it a rest.'' Marshall has some attractive rides on Saturday with trainer David Oughton using him now in the absence of Mick Kinane. ''I'm looking forward to the meeting and with a bit of luck I might land a winner or two,'' he said.
