David Harrison is likely to be discharged from hospital in England in early December following the latest confirmation of his progress since damaging his spinal cord in a fall in a race in Hong Kong at the end of May. The 29-year-old Welshman was told his likely release date following analysis of a second MRI scan carried out last month. He now has movement in both legs and is busy working with physiotherapists on regaining his balance and also strengthening the hips and torso. 'The doctor told me that the bleeding and swelling has gone down on my spinal cord, which is good, and she said my body is coping well with the injury,' Harrison told the Racing Post in England. 'Obviously, I can see on the scan where the injury is, but the doctor said she couldn't say what I am going to get back and what I am not going to get back. She said that would be determined by my body and the physiotherapy. 'The doctors say they only carry out the second MRI scan to find whether the injury has got bigger, which it hasn't, and she gave me a discharge date of December 3, although it depends on how I am progressing with my physio. 'If I do leave in December that will be six months, which is the time they said most patients stay when I came in.' Harrison was seriously injured in a fall from My Chief at Sha Tin on May 30. He was treated in the intensive care unit of the Prince Of Wales Hospital, Sha Tin, for a fortnight before being transferred to England to receive specialist treatment at the Stoke Mandeville rehabilitation centre. Harrison and his wife, Abby, are due to attend former Hong Kong-based jockey Darryll Holland's wedding near Newmarket today. This follows the success of a 'trial run' which last weekend saw Harrison stay at his home in Newmarket for the first time since the injury. Prior to that home visit, Harrison had spent a number of weekends over the past two months at a bungalow 20 minutes' drive from Stoke Mandeville. The bungalow was provided by English racehorse owner Bill Shand-Kydd, a former amateur rider who himself spent 14 months at the rehabilitation centre after being paralysed from the neck down following a fall when team-chasing.
