Horror fall: Paul Hanagan could be sidelined for months after an arm injury

Dual champion jockey Paul Hanagan has been taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge for an X-ray on his arm after a fall at Newmarket on Saturday.

Hanagan came down in the 150,000 Tattersalls Millions 3-Y-O Cup when riding No Dominion, who clipped heels with the Richard Hughes-ridden Viewpoint.

Newmarket's director of racing
Michael Prosser said: 'Paul is stable and has just been taken to
Addenbrooke's for precautionary X-rays.

'His wife is following him to the hospital and the family are all aware of the situation.

'We have to praise the medical staff for their quick attention.'

Angus Gold, racing manager to Sheikh
Hamdan Al Maktoum, Hanagan's employer, said: 'We've heard that he might
have cracked his elbow, either that or it's badly bruised. As well as
that, he's got a dead leg.

'If it's the elbow, it could be serious and that will be a shame for him as he's just getting going.'
