McCoy buzzing over Cee Bee

Tony McCoy was "delighted" with the performance of Captain Cee Bee in Sunday's Grimes Hurdle at Tipperary, according to his trainer, Eddie Harty.

The 10-year-old was winning his 10th race from just 21 outings on his first return to smaller obstacles for over three years.

A decision now has to be made to run him in either the Galway Plate, his original target, in which he would have to carry top weight, or the Galway Hurdle, for which he would only have 10st 11lb if Overturn runs.

"He might be 10, but he proved all his ability is still there," said Harty.

"Tony was delighted with him, he said he just got a bit tired in the last 100 yards but he travelled very well."
