Chief steward Marc Van Gestel said Bowman had briefly lost consciousness while the Chris Waller-trained Performer appeared to escape any injury.

“Hugh is obviously sore and sorry and was unconscious for a short time,” Van Gestel said.

“It doesn’t appear he has suffered any breaks but he will have X-rays to make sure.”
