Friends of Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Michelle Payne have sprung to the rider's defence over claims she has stormed out of a media conference to promote the Dubai Duty Free Cup at Ascot in England on Saturday.

Michelle Payne , one of the headline acts at Saturday's Dubai Duty Free Cup, walked out of a media event in London on Thursday to promote the fixture. Michelle Payne : top Australian jockey swore at Ascot official . Scott Barbour. 1 of 1.

Earlier Payne fulfilled part of her obligations by posing for photos with other riders and gave some interviews before departing.

Since her successful ride on Prince of Penzance making her the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup life has not been easy.

In May 2016 she suffered a near-career ending fall at Mildura after the horse she was riding collapsed and was stood on by a rival horse in the race. The former Ballarat schoolgirl suffered a torn pancreas and remained out of racing for some months.

On the cusp of last year's Melbourne Cup it was made clear to Payne that if Prince Of Penzance was to make last year's Melbourne Cup she would not be aboard him.

Some time after, Payne and Australia's most successful horse trainer Darren Weir parted company with Weir saying "there's no 'I' in team".

Payne, in June, was suspended for riding for a month after pleading guilty to taking an appetite suppressant, Phentermine.
