Ton up for Tony as he sets a relentess pace

TONY McCOY racked up another century of winners before the National Hunt season kicks into top gear when he guided Thespis Of Icaria to victory at Uttoxeter yesterday evening.

The 16-time champion jump jockey is already setting a relentless pace in his quest to retain his crown, and reached yet another landmark in a remarkable career.


He showed his appetite is as strong as ever when guiding Rebecca Curtis' unbeaten gelding to success in the concluding bumper.

After having drawn a blank from two rides at Sedgefield on Tuesday, McCoy was out of luck in his first three rides at Uttoxeter before landing his 100th success of the campaign on the last race on the card at the Staffordshire track.
