Tony McCoy needs just one more victory to hit the incredible 4,000-winner mark after steering Minella For Steak to score at Chepstow.

The 18-times champion was due to ride Mission Complete in the NFU Mutual Supports RABI Handicap Hurdle but trainer Jonjo O'Neill took that one out on account of the ground, prompting McCoy to switch to stablemate Minella For Steak.

Sent off the 3-1 favourite, McCoy duly guided home his 3,999th winner aboard the Gay Smith and John Magnier-owned gelding.
