Ryan Mania will be released from hospital this afternoon after an MRI on his back and neck revealed just minor injuries.
The Grand National winner was propelled to stardom after his victory at Aintree on Saturday, but came crashing back down to earth at Hexham 24 hours later.
Mania was kicked in the back after falling from Smith's Stagecoach Jasper at the fourth flight of the St John Lee Handicap Hurdle and was airlifted to Newcastle Hospital.
He spent two nights in hospital but no serious damage has been found and he hopes to return to the saddle within weeks.
In a statement Mania's agent, Bruce Jeffrey, said:
"Ryan had his MRI scan this morning and it has shown up a very small fracture in his C7 vertebra and there is also some soft tissue and ligament damage.
"Ryan feels fine in himself and he is up and walking about perfectly fine.
"He is hoping to be back in the saddle in the very near future.
"Once again, Ryan and his family would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody for their support, it has been fantastic, and he just can't wait to get back riding again."
