Hanagan came down in the £150,000 Tattersalls Millions 3YO Cup when his mount No Dominion clipped the heels of another runner.
He was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge for X-rays on his arm and leg, but both came back clear and he is just severely bruised.
Hanagan's agent Richard Hale said: "His X-rays came back OK and, at the moment, he's aiming to be back on either Friday or Saturday, but we'll just have to take it day by day.
"He is lucky as it could have been a lot worse."
The Tattersalls Millions Cup was won by the in form John Gosden-trained and William Buick ridden favourite Michelangelo.
Sons of Galileo dominated the result with Michelangelo denying Frankie Dettori's mount Cameron Highland in the 10f race restricted to horses sold at the Tattersalls October Sale.
The result was a triumph for agent Charlie Gordon-Watson as he signed at 550,000gns for Michaelangelo and at 310,000gns for Cameron Highland for different clients.
Gosden commented: “Michelangelo has done it well over an inadequate trip and he will now step up in distance and go for the Gordon Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and then the Great Voltigeur at York.”
