Young Jockey Cameron Noble Apologises for Chester Mistake

Young Apprentice jockey Cameron Noble has apologised for his mistake at Chester last Friday after mistakenly riding his horse to finish a lap earlier then the expected trip.

The rider has said that he will prove to the racing world and himself that he will work twice as hard to rectify his error.

Noble just before the horrifying mistake has notched up his first success at the course on board the Dr. Marwan Koukash owned Heart of Soul in the Apprentice Handicap race over 1 and half miles.

However, what was to follow was something that the rider will hope will never happen again as he was suspended for 10 days for his ride on Michael's Mount in the Chester Plate.

He went for home leading the pack by a wide margin on only the first time turning into the straight when there was still another circuit to go in the 2 mile 2f Chester Plate which was the last race of the three day festival.

The rider was eventually beaten by 21 lengths into fourth with the Alan King trained Couer De Lion landing the spoils.

Noble was banned for 10 days for this dangerous riding and will be out of action from May 24th to June 3rd, it was a very unfortunate event for the youngster but something he will definitely learn from in what could be a smart career.

"I was disappointed in myself more than anything after the race. I’ve got to move on from it and today’s another day so I’m just looking forward to getting back out there."

Noble is set up with Michael Bell and this year has a serious chance of landing the Champion Apprentice title this term.

Noble added: "It was great to ride my first winner at Chester for Marwan Koukash earlier in the day – he hadn’t had much luck there this week so it was fantastic to get one on the board for him and Ian Williams, who has been very good to me and given me lots of opportunities recently.

"I’d love to go for the apprentice title this season and that’s my main aim. I just want to ride as many winners as possible and see where it takes me."
