He has been suspended by the British Horseracing Authority and barred from attending licensed premises while police carry out their investigation.

The jockey, who has ridden at Grade 1 level, is believed to be receiving support and advice from the Professional Jockeys’ Association.

He has not been seen on a racecourse since his arrest.

Police could not confirm or deny the jockey’s arrest.

But a leading trainer said that he was arrested shortly after his final ride for him.

A BHA spokesperson said: “We do not comment on investigations or speculation surrounding possible investigations.”

The PJA did not respond to several requests for comment.
