My 12th ‘PIGEON RACING’ jockey interview sees me speak to another young rider who has certainly made a name for himself in recent weeks when riding SEAMSTER for David Loughnane as the pair teamed up for no less than FIVE wins between June and August as well as FIVE places in the same period. Cameron Noble has also enjoyed recent success on FUWAIRT for the same trainer as well as steering TYRSAL to an impressive last to first win at Yarmouth last week

Date and Place of Birth

26 August 1998, Preston Lancashire

Who inspired you to get into racing and when did you first realise you wanted to be a jockey

Watching Channel 4 on a Saturday afternoon really set my sights on wanting to be a Jockey from around the age of 7

What age did you first ride / first actual race ride

I first started riding ponies at the age of 7 and my first race ride I had not long turned 17

What are your strengths and weaknesses

I think my weaknesses are my inexperience, and my strength is I’d like to think I ride quite patiently

Who are your jockey idols you look up to or maybe base yourself on

The lads I look up to the most are definitely James Doyle, William Buick and Ryan Moore. As they’re at the top of their game and very good at the top level

What was your first winner and how many winners so far

My first winner was for Michael Bell on board Captain Lars at Lingfield, and I’ve had 10 winners to date

Which would you regard as your biggest win

My biggest win so far would be onboard FUWAIRT at Chelmsford for David Loughnane

Which racecourses do you like best or least/tricky to ride

The racecourse I like the most is Ascot its just a great atmosphere. I don’t really have any trouble with tracks at the moment as I’ve not ridden at a lot of tricky tracks.

Who gives you your best advice

I get great advice from lots of people so it’d be hard to choose between them

What is the best horse you have ever ridden

The best horse I’ve ever sat on would have to be BELARDO which was a privilege to say the least

I’ve loved your partnership with SEAMSTER. Tell me about how you got the ride and the story so far !

Well it all came as a bit of luck, I picked him up as a spare ride the night before and ended up winning. Since then I’ve partnered him to 4 wins and I’ve never been out of the first four 4 on him. He’s an absolute pleasure to ride and always puts in his best. David Loughnane has also been very supportive of me since

What time do you get up in the morning most days and what would be your average kind of day

I’d get up most mornings between 4:30am and 5:00am. I’d then ride out 3-4 lots then go racing or go back for evening stables

Which stable do you work for or ride out at the moment

I’m currently with Roger Varian and work full time

Who are your best mates in the weighing room

I’d like to think I get along with most people in the weighing room

What’s worst part of the job

It would have to be the travelling, it becomes very tiring

What hobbies or sports do you like to watch or play away from racing

I don’t get time for many hobbies or sports but I’m a good fan of Moto GP and Formula 1

Food and drink

I’m partial to a bit of Steak now and again and I love Naked Smoothies

TV Films & Music

When I have the time I like to watch a new series called Containment and I’d struggle to pick a favourite film as I have many. I like most music

Which course would you like to ride a winner at this year (even if you’ve already ridden a win there)

It would have to be Ascot

How do you like and compare the different All-weather surfaces/courses (if you’ve ridden any yet)

I like most all weather surfaces although Southwell can be quite challenging. I think they did a great job at Newcastle it rides well and there isn’t a particular bias

If you were put in charge of racing for one day what changes would you make

There isn’t an awful lot I would change, racing is going the right way with a lot of good supporters

What are your ambitions for the near future

My ambitions are to ride as many winners as possible

Can you give readers a horse to follow for the rest of the season

I think JUMIRA BRIDGE could turn out quite nice.

Big thanks to Cameron for his time and best of luck to him for the rest of the season. Tonight he rides CRAFTSMANSHIP at Chelmsford
