AUSTRALIAN ace Darren Beadman was out of hospital last night and tipping a return to the saddle late this month as his retaining trainer John Moore named John Marshall as his new stable jockey for next season. Beadman has made amazing progress since being thrown from Rainbow Connection at Happy Valley on Wednesday night and taken to the nearby Hongkong Sanatorium with neck, shoulder and face injuries. The result of final scans yesterday showed nothing serious amiss and Beadman was released. Moore, reported earlier as ready to cancel Beadman's contract to bring in an overseas rider for the final decisive weeks of his battle for the title, said: ''I will be filling in for an expected three meetings until Darren gets back. ''I had a long talk with him today and he is certain he will be back in action quite quickly. He was concerned about the cancellation of the contract but that is not the case. There is now no overseas jockey in the frame.'' Moore confirmed the final offer to Marshall to ride for him next season, adding: ''It's up to John. We have spoken about it and he has the offer.'' In a busy day for those involved, Marshall spoke to Moore to confirm acceptance of the position as stable rider for next season. ''John and I have spoken about it on and off for about 10 days. But he knew that I was either going to his stable or go straight back to Sydney at the end of the season,'' said Marshall. ''He offered me the job and I have accepted it. I will also be helping him out to the end of the present season but much of that will depend on how quickly Darren is back,'' added Marshall, who also has commitments with trainers David Oughton and Chris Cheung Ting-pong. But Beadman means to be back in action as quickly as possible. He said last night: ''I am delighted to be back home and everything is on the mend. I am getting another opinion very early in the week as I am still in a neck brace but I am saying that I will be back in the saddle at the end of this month. ''I intend to ride the final five meetings of the season. ''I have spoken to John and told him that and everything seems to be all right. I have also spoken to (chief stipendiary steward) Bernard Hargreaves to let him know that I expect to be riding again fairly quickly.'' Beadman, who has been with Moore since last September, moves to Neville Begg next season.
