24/04/02 Scott to Return at the Valley
Leading cross country jockey Brett Scott will be making hus return to the saddle in Rosemount Bob Barr Smith Hurdle at Moonee Valley in Melbourne on Saturday.

Scott has been out of the saddle since he was seriously injured in a fall at Warrnambool on January 20. In the fall he broke vertebrae and was forced to the sidelines for a touch more than three months.

Close Quarters, who was placed at his most recent jumps start at Caulfield, will be the top hoop's comeback ride in the two mile jumps event at the Valley.

On radio this morning Scott said he was pleased to be back in the saddle and he was looking forward to next week's Warrnambool Carnival.

"With there being a fair few jumps races at Warrnambool it seemed logical to return on Saturday at the Valley and get back into the swings of things," he told Sport 927.

Scott, who is the stable foreman at Mornington for champion New Zealand trainer John Wheeler, was disappointed to miss the recent Oakbank Easter Jumping Carnival in South Australia.

Meanwhile, Scott reported that the Japan jumps conqueror St Steven had returned to Melbourne.

"He arrived back last Sunday and he will spend two weeks in quarantine," Scott adeed.

The winner of the Nakayama Grand Jump will be nominated for the feature chasing events including the Grand National Steeple and AV Hiskens Steeplechase.

And in other news from the stable Scott confirmed that the dashing jumper Maybe Rough has been retired.

"He broke down when he ran fourth in the Von Doussa at Oakbank," Scott said.

"Thankfully the owner has had him operated on to save him and he'll be retired alongside the great Rough Habit."
