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.

He had to pull up the Venetia Williams-trained gelding once he saw the other runners jump the obstacle and realised his error.
