JOCKEY Tony McCoy will have to wait until Chepstow tomorrow at the earliest for his 4,000th winner after drawing a blank with three rides at Exeter this afternoon.

McCoy – who remains on a remarkable 3,998 career wins – was narrowly denied in the opening novice hurdle on Flemenson by the Hadden Frost-ridden Rydon Pynes

In the following race his mount, Keen Eye, never looked like getting among the winners at any stage.

More Sport:

Well Hello There, his third ride of the day, was held back by a bad blunder just before the home straight and was ultimately well beaten.

McCoy has two booked rides at the Welsh venue tomorrow — the Rebecca Curtis-trained El Macca in the R.A.B.I. Gateway Project Maiden Hurdle and Jonjo O’Neill’s Mission Complete, who could be appropriately named should he land the NFU Mutual Supports R.A.B.I. Handicap Hurdle.
