Steve Drowne hopes to get the all-clear to resume race riding in the next few weeks.
The jockey has been sidelined since suffering a blackout in March.
Tests have returned negative and Drowne is now waiting to be given the thumbs up from Dr Michael Turner, the British Horseracing Authority chief medical officer.
Drowne has been keeping fit, riding out for Beckhampton trainer Roger Charlton but that has been no consolation for missing such winning rides as Cityscape in the Dubai Duty Free at Meydan.
"In the second week in March I had a blackout at home. That was my driving licence gone and obviously my riding licence followed it," he told At The Races.
"I've been for tests, seen specialists and I'm clear now. I'd had everything done and it's all clear.
"The specialist has said there is no reason why I can't drive, ride, or whatever, so I've got to the stage where I'm just waiting for clearance from the chief medical officer, Dr Turner.
"They think it was just a one-off. They are not too sure what happened or what caused it. It could have been a virus thing, but when something like this happens, it has to be checked out thoroughly and it's that which has took the time.
"I never felt it was anything too serious. You get a gut feeling about these things, but that didn't matter I had to go through the tests.
"I would hope I'd be back in weeks if not quicker. Dr Turner is the boss and he knows best on medical matters but I hope my return would be imminent anyway.
"It has been frustrating. This is an important time of the year. Unless you are a big name, you've got to build up again so it's going to be tough getting back into things.
"I have been able to ride out, so fitness wise it hasn't affected me that badly. It's a matter of getting cleared.
"I've been riding out for Roger (Charlton) and obviously James (Doyle) is going to continue to ride a few of them as well so we'll go from there.
"At the moment I'm taking it day by day and just waiting for the phone call when I'm cleared."
