Jim Crowley and Electrify were racing immediately behind and were brought down, as was Steve Drowne's mount Skara Mae.

Ted Durcan was also caught up in the melee and was unseated from Sovrano Dolce.

Both Drowne and Durcan returned to the weighing room, albeit walking gingerly, but Tylicki and Crowley were both being attended to on the track.

With racing having already been delayed for over an hour, Racing UK reported that both riders were being taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting, with Tylicki taken by air ambulance and Crowley by road ambulance.

The decision was then taken to abandon the meeting.
