Racing: McCoy two short of the fastest 100

Click to follow
Tony McCoy now needs just two more winners to beat Peter Scudamore's record of the fastest-ever century of National Hunt winners. The champion jockey reached the 98-winner mark for the season with a victory on Quini Eagle in Kempton's last race yesterday.

McCoy was last night considering an appeal against a three-day ban, imposed for whip abuse on Tuesday, which sidelines him for the Hennessy Gold Cup.
