JENNY LITSTON, the amateur rider who suffered head and neck injuries in a fall at the United Services point-to-point meeting at Larkhill 17 days ago, has been taken off a ventilator but remains unconscious.

Her father, Bill Gooden, was saddling two of her horses at Leicester's hunter chase meeting yesterday. My Mellow Man and Bee Garden both came second. 'Jenny is responding a little more each time we see her, but it's going to be a long haul,' he said.

A taped commentary of the recent victory by My Mellow Man at Mendip point-to-point was played to her in a Southampton hospital last week.
