Hollie Doyle is expected to spend the rest of January out of action after breaking her elbow and rupturing a cruciate ligament in an all-weather fall at Wolverhampton on Monday night.

The six-time group 1 winner was thrown to the ground when her mount, The Perfect Crown, trained by Archie Watson, plunged with two long feathers for a run and was badly injured in the claimant of seven. Longhair.

She missed four trips, two of which were winners, at Kempton on Tuesday and has been booked to go this weekend in Kempton on Thursday, Newcastle on Friday and Wolverhampton on Saturday.

“Unfortunately, I broke my elbow and the ligaments around it.” Doyle said. “It could have been worse because it was a weird fall but hopefully I’ll be back in a few weeks.”

At Wolverhampton, Doyle managed to walk to the ambulance and from there into the weight room, clutching her lower arm but missing her other two mounts.

Regarding the circumstances of the fall, Doyle said: “I was going over the horse’s head when it broke both front legs, it was a strange accident.”
