Jockey Matt O’Connor has been moved from out of intensive care today as he continues to recover from a fall at Thurles in March.
Colm Murphy’s conditional rider was knocked unconscious after his mount, Walkin Aisy, fell at the fifth-last fence of the Templemore Beginners Chase.
He has since remained in hospital.
Dr Walter Halley, former chief medical officer for the Irish Turf Club and a member of the jockey’s family, said: “I was talking to his parents this morning and he is in good form.
“He is now out of intensive care and things are going the right way.
“The O’Connor family wanted me to pass on their thanks to everyone who has phoned and sent letters.
“Visiting is still limited.”
