Thornton needed to have an operation on the injury earlier this week and expert consultant Richard Keys has given him the bad news.

The jockey said on Twitter: "Mr Keys has just told me 3 months out. I could cry again. Still aiming for 6-7 weeks. I have something to prove again!"

The seven-year-old has been sidelined with a stress fracture to his pelvis.
