Davy Russell taken to hospital following Roscommon fall
on 08 August 2018
Top jump jockey lucky to escape with bruising from handicap chase tumble

Davy Russell was taken to hospital for X-rays on a leg injury following a fall at Roscommon on Tuesday evening.

The rider parted company with the Gordon Elliott-trained Crack Of Thunder four fences from home in the Michael Holland Tyres Handicap Chase.

Medical officer Dr Richard Downey said the rider had gone to Tullamore Hospital with a "query tibia fracture" but Russell tweeted later that evening that he had broken no bones and was just "badly bruised".
