Hayley Turner was in the winner's enclosure at Wolverhampton on Saturday evening on her fourth ride back since suffering injuries in a shocking fall at Doncaster in September.

Turner was hurt when Seal Of Approval clipped heels in the Park Hill Stakes at the Leger meeting, being thrown to the ground and left with what later emerged to be a broken pelvis.

Returning to action with three rides at Lingfield on Friday, Turner made it count at Dunstall Park when just getting the Conor Dore-trained George Fenton (11/8 favourite) up by a short head in a thrilling finish to the Ladbrokes Handicap.

It has not been a great year on the injury front for Turner, who had not long been back in the saddle following a broken ankle in July when she was hurt at Doncaster.

Seal Of Approval, trained by James Fanshawe, escaped unhurt and on her next start claimed the Group One British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes at Ascot.
