"It feels like I have been run over by an elephant. "I tried to swim this morning but was unable to do a stroke of breaststroke. "I shall go and see my own doctor this afternoon and will have more idea of when I can get back but I won't be riding until Monday at the earliest." Robinson remembers the incident clearly."It all happened so fast but I heard a scream and then the two horses in front fell and I came down immediately afterwards." The jockey praised staff at the Lagan Valley Hospital in Lisburn, where he was taken after the fall.
"The people at the hospital were very, very good and they wouldn't have let me go if they felt I wasn't right but they advised another X-ray if the pain didn't clear up." Rutter, stood down for a mandatory 48-hours, disagrees with medical opinion that he was concussed in the fall, which occurred on a bend three furlongs from the finish. "I feel fine," he said yesterday.Reuse content
