Tony McCoy, who rides at both Huntingdon and Cheltenham today, has decided not to appeal against the suspension incurred at Newton Abbot last week. He will be on the sidelines for three days from Thursday, thus missing the Hennessy meeting.

Today, he partners Courbaril in the 1.00 at Cheltenham, then travels east to ride Teinein in the 3.35 at Huntingdon. "Tony will be doing the trip by car. He should easily be able to do it in one and a half hours," his agent, Dave Roberts, said.

Banned for five days and booed by the Wolverhampton crowd yesterday was the apprentice David Griffiths. He threw away a race he should have won when failing to ride out Dragonjoy and was caught on the line by Honestly.
