(Reuters) – Jockey Bryony Frost will miss next month’s Grand National meeting after breaking her collarbone in a fall four days after her victory at the Cheltenham Festival, the 23-year-old said on Thursday.

Frost, who last week became the first woman to ride a top-level Grade One Cheltenham Festival winner aboard Frodon in the Ryanair Chase, was injured after falling from Midnight Bliss at Southwell on Monday.

“Yesterday I went to see an extremely good specialist in Cardiff where my X-ray results have shown that I’ve fractured my clavicle,” Frost said in a blog for betting company Matchbook.

“I suffered a fracture previously which healed well under pressure. My body’s response from that fracture makes me positive for when I go back for my assessment in a fortnight’s time and a swift return.”

The Grand National meeting will be held at Aintree from April 4-6. Devon-born Frost had finished fifth on Milansbar in last year’s National.
