SAM TWISTON-DAVIESSam Twiston-Davies is to go freelance this season, but will continue to ride on a regular basis for ten-time champion trainer Paul Nicholls, who he joined as number one jockey in 2014.

Twiston-Davies, 25, who has recorded a century of winners for the last five seasons, believes the new arrangement will give chances of being Champion Jockey a boost going into the new campaign.
