Tony McCoy breaks duck in the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdl

The 17-times champion jockey toyed with African Gold on the long run to the final flight

Tony McCoy broke his duck for the meeting with a cheeky success on At Fishers Cross in the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham.

The 17-times champion jockey toyed with African Gold on the long run to the final flight and pressed on after getting a great leap out of the Rebecca Curtis-trained gelding.

The 11-8 favourite pulled clear up the hill to score by four and a half lengths from African Gold (9-2) with Inish Island (13-2) just a nose back in third.
