Sue Smith, who trains Grand National winner Auroras Encore, says jockey Ryan Mania is going to recover from the injury he sustained in a nasty fall at Hexham.
She told Daybreak: “It wasn’t so good there for an hour but… thankfully it looks as though all is going to be well.”
She added: “[It] looked to be a very unfortunate fall, it was another horse that’s trodden on him.”
Husband Harvey said: “These lads fall every other day so he’ll soon bounce back.
"It’s part of the job.”
Mania guided outsider Auroras Encore to a shock victory at Aintree racecourse on Saturday.
