He has started the new season in great form to be second on premiership.

He withdrew midway through the meeting on Friday night.

An X-ray on Saturday confirmed he had a fracture high up on his right foot.

“I hurt it in the barriers at Murwillumbah (Oct 15) the day after I came down in a fall at the Monday meeting. I decided it wasn't too bad and rode on for the next ten days,” Cahill said.

“But I bumped it again at the Sunshine Coast and I couldn't ride on.

“I've been in the wars a bit of late but hopefully I won't be out too long,” he said.

“But it looks like at least a month.”

Fellow jockey hopes to be back soon with scans on an injured knee showing no major structural damage.
