Sydney apprentice Jean Van Overmeire has suffered a double blow with confirmation he has a fractured left shoulder and broken right wrist.

Overmeire fell when his mount knuckled over at the start of a barrier trial at Rosehill on Tuesday.

He was found to have a fractured left scapula and further tests confirmed on Wednesday he had broken his right wrist.

Over the past year, Van Overmeire has had more than his fair share of injuries, the most serious a broken ankle when he was kicked by a horse at trackwork.

In August, he transferred his indentures from Bjorn Baker at Warwick Farm to Anthony Cummings at Randwick and rode a winner, Something Fast, for his boss at Randwick on Saturday.
