Jockey Tahlia Hope was transferred out of the intensive care unit to the Frankston hospital, while continuing to fight viral meningitis.

The Victorian Jockeys Association confirmed Friday evening that Hope responded well to treatment during the day.

The doctors confirmed Thursday that the young knight had viral meningitis, an infection and brain swelling

Speaking RSN927 On Friday morning, VJA CEO Matt Hyland suggested that the twenty-year-old jockey had made improvements but remained in intensive care.

"According to Shannon (Hope, Tahlia's father) this morning, he did some improvement during the night," Hyland said.

"He's still in intensive care and as long as they can't keep things under control, I'm sure that's where he will stay."

Hope drove a double city to Adelaide last weekend from just two rides, driving Street Sheik and Howlowcanyougo to Patrick Payne's victory.

Hope was booked to guide Husson Eagle to Payne in Race 5 at Caulfield on Saturday.
