Treadwell bounces back in style

January 31, 2013 12:09:41 UK

Liam Treadwell suffered the lowest of lows at Leicester before bouncing back with a winner on an extraordinary day on Wednesday.

His day could have hardly have got off to a worse start when he was hit with a 12-day ban after missing a fence and thus taking the wrong course aboard Special Robon.

After what had gone on earlier I was happy to find myself in the winner's enclosure.

But within an hour he had bounced back aboard his boss Venetia Williams' Reginaldinho, guiding the winner home by five lengths.

And after his ups and downs he said: "I can only apologise to all the connections and all involved with Special Robon. I hold my hands up.

"I'd got the route fixed in my head and I made a mistake. There's nothing else I can do but apologise. I'm not going to make any excuses. It was entirely my fault and I take full responsibility and the punishment."

Success on Reginaldinho was some compensation and Treadwell was delighted with the horse's performance.

He said: "I was very pleased with the way he did that. He was always going well and picked up really well.

"After what had gone on earlier I was happy to find myself in the winner's enclosure. It was a strange afternoon!"

Meanwhile, Barry Geraghty is 5.00 to be the Cheltenham Festival's top jockey, while Ruby Walsh is 1.16 and A P McCoy can be backed at 41.00
