Suspected leg break for Madden

Niall 'Slippers' Madden was taken to hospital with a suspected broken leg after a crunching fall at Clonmel.

The rider was hurt when Pipe Down, trained by his father Niall, fell in the Go Racing In The South East '5 For 50' Handicap Chase.

The fence was bypassed as Madden received treatment before being taken for further assessment.

Madden has only returned to action in recent days following a similar injury.
