SunSport columnist Matt Chapman tweeted: “During @CheltenhamRaces Festival I mentioned on @itvracing conditional Aidan MacDonald had a horror fall @HexhamRaces.

“He is now in a critical condition and receiving active treatment for a suspected carotid artery dissection. All we can do is hope…”

MacDonald was said to have been conscious when rushed to Royal Victoria Infirmary following the fall at Hexham racecourse on March 18.

The jockey came crashing to earth three hurdles from home when sent flying from 22-1 shot Russian Royale.

The 11-year-old horse returned to his feet but MacDonald was left lying on the turf.

James Armstrong, clerk of the course at Hexham, tweeted at the time: “Aidan MacDonald is being taken from @HexhamRaces to RVI in Newcastle following his fall in the first.

“He was conscious and taken off by ambulance.

“All our thoughts with him and fingers crossed for a speedy recovery.”
