He was initially sent for a precautionary X-ray, but it was felt following that a scan would be beneficial.

Turf Club medical officer Dr Adrian McGoldrick said: "Bryan has gone to Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown for a scan, as the X-ray was not very clear.

"It probably won't be done until tomorrow, possibly even Monday, given the weekend.

"He's sore around his pelvis, he's in good form but Dr (Paddy) Kenny felt he should get it done. Hopefully that will be tomorrow."
