CHAMPION jockey Basil Marcus will take his dynamic talents back to Britain for the first time in four years next month. The South African ace, who staged the most incredible comeback in the history of local racing to retain his title at the expense of Tony Cruz, will ride for one month from mid-July. Marcus, who left for home with his family yesterday, said: ''I fixed up the basic details some time ago and I will be riding under a one-month international licence from the English Jockey Club. ''It would be a hassle to try and ride any longer over there as there are a lot of details which are not easily sorted out. ''I will be staying in Cambridge, next to Newmarket, and I hope to be riding for about three different trainers. They know I am coming,'' he said. Marcus rode for several months in England before accepting an offer four years ago to ride for Lam Hung-fie. He rode most for Michael Jarvis and Ben Hanbury, both Newmarket-based. And Tony Cruz, who saw an 18-winner lead disappear following the Marcus late-season assault, will also be riding briefly in England although most of his off-season riding duties will be centred on Germany and France. Cruz headed for England last night but will be joined later this month by wife Pauline and his children in Germany. Pauline said: ''Tony thinks it is important to keep in real shape in the summer and he has fixed up a riding engagement in Germany and will also be riding in France.'' Champion trainers John Moore and David Hill jetted off to America within an hour of each other yesterday. Moore will visit Ireland next month, breaking new ground for the three-time champion trainer. ''I am going to see some horses on behalf of a couple of owners and I intend to meet some people over there who could be useful in the future. ''I am sorting out the details but I will probably be there in mid-July,'' said Moore. Hill will visit Keeneland during his break and expects to be back in Hongkong in early August. But he will not be here for the first couple of days of the new season. ''I intend to go back to Keeneland for the sales. I am looking for a couple of yearlings,'' he said. Ivan Allan returned to his home in Singapore yesterday where he will take a few weeks' holiday. ''I've never had to work so hard and really need a break. I'm even going to miss Royal Ascot for the first time in years, but I really must have a rest,'' said Allan.
