Champion jockey Paul Hanagan will be back in the saddle at Sandown tomorrow after recovering from injuries he suffered in a frightening fall at Newmarket last weekend.
The dual champion sustained arm and leg injuries when his horse No Dominion clipped heels and came down in the Tattersalls Millions Three Year Old Cup on Saturday.
He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridgeshire where x-rays revealed no borken bones or serious injuries. Hanagan has spent the week recuperating and is ready to ride again.
“He’s fine now, it was always the plan to come back on Saturday. He’s got two rides at Sandown and he’ll just ease back in gently. With the July meeting next week it’s important he’s right for that,” said his agent Richard Hale.
Hanagan is in his first season as retained jockey to owner Sheikh Hamdan, following the retirement of Richard Hills.
