Trainer David Hayes will wait for a definitive decision on the remainder of Gerald Mosse's season before considering a new rider for outstanding mare Elegant Fashion. Mosse yesterday advised the Jockey Club he would not be fit to ride again until the end of this month and would return to France tonight for further medical opinion on the facial injuries suffered when he fell on April 27. 'I have seen the doctor today and the good news is that I will not require any operation. I am very happy about that,' Mosse said yesterday. 'But he has advised me to take the next three weeks off riding. I will go back to him in two weeks and get a progress check. If his advice then is that I am clear to return, then I will ride again from the start of June. If not, I may finish the season then rather than come back for just one or two meetings.' The Hong Kong Derby-winning Elegant Fashion will make her Hong Kong season finale in the ING Hong Kong Champions & Chater Cup (2,400 metres) on June 1. 'I don't think there will be any trouble getting a good rider for her in the Champions & Chater - I think I can hear the phone ringing now,' Hayes quipped yesterday. 'But Gerald has built up a great rapport with the mare and the combination has been a success, so I would not want to book another jockey until it is clear what he is going to do. 'When Gerald had that suspension hanging over him before the Queen Elizabeth, we did give some consideration to who might fill the breach, but I would rather not mention any names at this stage. The owner and I will work it all out when we know whether Mosse is going to be available.' Mosse steered the mare into second in the Queen Elizabeth II Cup on April 27, before his spectacular crash from Equator Kid in the last race on that day. Despite that fall, in which he was reported to have suffered facial lacerations and a small fracture above one eye, the Frenchman had been expected to resume riding with the expiration of a term of suspension tomorrow. Mosse said yesterday that, although he was fit to ride in all other respects, his facial injuries had been more significant than they at first appeared. 'It's a shame because I feel great - I'm in top form in every other way,' he said. 'Now I will go home to France and get a further opinion there, in case there is some chance I could ride sooner, but I will be back here next week for the stewards' inquiry into my fall.' The French rider was coming to win the race when a narrow opening on the outside of eventual winner, Mine Host, and the inside of Multiwinning, closed. Equator Kid clipped heels and crashed, slamming Mosse into the turf and the horse also suffered some injuries in the fall. Australian jockey Danny Beasley yesterday advised the Jockey Club he would be unable to arrive until tomorrow evening. The Club has issued a release to say Beasley would undergo his medical check on Friday before starting trackwork on Saturday. His first meeting will now be next Wednesday at Happy Valley.
