Walter Swinburn was yesterday continuing to please doctors as he recovers slowly from the multiple injuries he sustained in a fall at Sha Tin in Hong Kong on Sunday.

The Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club's racing director, Philip Johnston, said: "I have spoken to his father and Walter recognised him today, which is a good sign."

"He is in pain so the doctors have kept him on drugs. I think he will be in intensive care for another four days. The problem is his lungs - they need to get the gunge out of them."
