Doctors believe jockey has no serious neck or spinal injuries
Champion lady jockey Isabel Tompsett's condition remains unchanged this morning after Sunday's fall at Fakenham Racecourse
Tompsett, 28, was riding Leopold for trainer David Thompson in the Aylsham Show-Bank Holiday 29th August Lady Amateur Riders' Handicap Hurdle when she crashed out at the third flight.
Lisa Hancock, chief executive of the Injured Jockeys Fund, said this afternoon that the jockey remains in a stable condition at the neurology ward at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge.
Ms Hancock said: 'Isabel appears to be slightly more comfortable as the doctors are confident that she has no neck or spinal injuries and, as such, have been able to remove her neck brace.
'She is still heavily sedated and there is likely to be no change of any significance in the next 48 to 72 hours.'
