Multiple country cups-winning jockey Jasen Watkins makes his comeback from a serious neck injury this Saturday at Grafton.
Jasen has spent the past 18 months on the sidelines and cannot wait to get back to the races.
"I've been riding a lot of trackwork for Sally Taylor and that has kept my weight down," he said.
Jasen Watkins, 43, last rode in October 2016 and forged a great association in 2010 with Jim Jarvis stayer Mr Gold Fire, winning Ballina, Coffs Harbour and Taree Cups.
He has two rides at Grafton on Saturday: Mother of All (race 1) and Kenric (race 5).
