Irish jockey Eddie Creighton's condition has improved overnight in Australia.

Creighton suffered a broken wrist and concussion in a fall Warrnambool and was transferred to Melbourne's Alfred Hospital when he suffered a seizure and was placed in an induced coma.

However, the Victorian Jockeys Association had better news for his friends and family.

"His head injury responded well overnight and he underwent surgery on his left wrist this morning," the VJA told

"He is conscious and responsive and all signs are positive."

Creighton won the Cherry Hinton in 2008 on Mick Channon's Please Sing.
