Leading jockey Lisa Allpress will get a clearer picture later next month about her return to race-riding.

She suffered severe injuries in a fall at the Hawera jumpouts in October and has subsequently undergone one shoulder operation.

“It’s been fairly frustrating and I go back to the specialist on February 28 and then he’ll make a decision whether he needs to operate on the other shoulder,” Allpress said.

During her time on the sidelines, she has been putting her experience to vital use by mentoring central districts apprentices.
