It has been confirmed Hill had several small bleeds to the brain as a consequence of the fall and also punctured a lung and broke his collarbone.

Hill was trampled by his mount The Muckle Toon after it clipped heels and fell just before the home turn in the fourth race.

Hill was attended to on the track, where he lay unconscious, before being airlifted to the Alfred.

The rest of the meeting was abandoned.

Racing Victoria stewards are investigating the circumstances of Hill’s fall and have suggested there is no concern about the state of the Donald track.
