Mixed fortunes for TreadwellHeadlines
Reginaldinho gives Liam Treadwell a welcome winner at Leicester

Liam Treadwell endured an afternoon of mixed fortunes at Leicester.

The Grand National-winning jockey was hit with a 12-day ban for taking the wrong course on Special Robon but bounced back with a victory on Reginaldinho on his very next ride.

Treadwell's costly error came when he was leading the field on Special Robon in the Cream Gorse Novices' Handicap Chase and he mistakenly bypassed the first fence in the straight instead of the second. 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.

"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."

An hour later Treadwell, who is suspended from February 13 to 24, drove Reginaldinho (3-1 favourite) into the lead at the third-last and kept Williams' seven-year-old up to his work as he repeated a course and distance success earlier in the month by landing the Thrussington Handicap Chase by six lengths from Trojan Sun.

Tony McCoy reached 150 winners for the season with victory on the highly-promising Buddy Bolero in the Billesdon Coplow Handicap Chase. Leading three out, the David Pipe-trained 10-11 favourite scampered away to beat See U Bob by 12 lengths to follow up a fencing debut win at Exeter.

McCoy said: "I've been slower getting to 150 than in previous years. If I could ride 50 more it would put the icing on the cake. He took a while to get going. He hasn't had much racing and his jumping was pretty safe for a horse that hasn't had much experience. He won OK in the end but four out I thought I was in trouble."

Module was another hot-pot to land the odds, the 1-4 shot building on a Newbury success in the Human League 6th July Novices' Chase. Tom George indicated Module could now go to Cheltenham after his 12-length defeat of Achimota under Paddy Brennan.

"He's jumped nicely and I'm pleased how switched off he is now. He's coped with two miles OK and he'll get three miles one day. What is exciting about him is he's won a two-mile handicap hurdle and he's a nice one to look forward to. He's in the Arkle and the Jewson. We're a long way off but he's going the right way," said the Slad trainer.
