Jockey Peter Toole is now obeying commands from doctors as he continues to recover from his fall at Aintree on Grand National day.

The 22-year-old suffered bleeding on the right side of his brain when Classic Fly fell at the first fence during the Maghull Novices' Chase and is currently in the Walton Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

He was taken out of a medically-induced coma on Thursday and his boss Charlie Mann has reported further progress.

Speaking on his Twitter page, Mann said: ‘Peter remains in a stable condition.

‘Positive signs he has woken enough to obey commands from doctors, remains on ventilator at present.’
