McCoy two wins from milestone
Monday 04 November 2013
Tony McCoy heads to Exeter for three rides on Tuesday on the brink of reaching the career landmark of 4,000 winners. A double at Kempton on Monday courtesy of Captain Cutter and Foundation Man left McCoy on 3,998 victories, meaning that he could reach the milestone at the course where he registered his first British winner on 7 September 1994, on the Gordon Edwards-trained Chickabiddy.
Of McCoy’s three mounts on Tuesday, the Jonjo O’Neill-trained Flemenson attempts to make it two from two over obstacles in the opening novice hurdle at the Devon venue, while McCoy also rides Keen Eye in a similar event and Well Hello There, also trained by O’Neill, goes in a handicap chase.
Assessing his rides, McCoy said: “I wouldn’t say they are good chances. Flemenson is probably the best one.”
The formerly smart hurdler and novice chaser Grands Crus put up another lamentable display at Kempton, trailing home fifth of sixth, beaten nine lengths behind God’s Own in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle. Once again David Pipe’s grey, who carried top weight, faded quickly after travelling well through the race.
