Jumps action from Ayr

The jump jockey took a tumble from Craiganboy, trained by her father Nick, at the third-last flight in the racinguk.com/freetrial Maiden Hurdle.

Racing was delayed for 25 minutes while she was taken by ambulance to Ayr's University Hospital.

"She was a bit bashed up but all she's got is a broken collarbone," said Alexander senior.

"She's going home tonight, but she will be devastated to have broken a collarbone just as the season is getting going.

"It could have been a lot worse.

"She wasn't concussed. She was just a bit dazed after the fall."
