Treadwell hit with Leicester banHeadlines
Liam Treadwell

Liam Treadwell was hit with a 12-day ban for taking the wrong course in an incident-packed opening race on all-chase card at Leicester.

The Grand National-winning rider was leading the field on Special Robon in the Cream Gorse Novices' Handicap Chase when he bypassed the first fence in the straight instead of the next. He had to pull up the Venetia Williams-trained gelding once he saw the other runners jump the obstacle and realised his error.

Treadwell told At The Races: "I must apologise to all connections. It was a poor bit of riding in the heat of the moment. It slipped my mind what was actually happening in front of me. I'm very sorry for everyone."

He went on: "It's windy out there. Just turning in the horse threw his head high and I'm trying to get behind the horse and carry him forward and I've got in my mind that the ditch was out.

"I'm not going to make any excuses. It was an error on my part and I'm disappointed for all the connections and people who backed the horse. You have to take any flak on the chin. It's not pleasant but it happened and you have be prepared to take a bit of flak."

Just an hour later Treadwell, who is suspended from February 13 to 24 inclusive, partnered Reginaldinho (3-1 favourite) to victory in the Thrussington Handicap Chase.
