Astracad gave a bold bid to land a fitting victory in the Mould colours but came under pressure at the last and McCoy was gathering momentum.
He was neck-and-neck with old stager French Opera up the run-in, ultimately gaining the day by a length.
Trainer Jonjo O'Neill said: "He made one mistake but he's normally a grand jumper and a good, honest horse. These two-mile races suit him."
McCoy added: "He's very consistent, he ran well here the last day. He's won as much as he's lost and he's very tough and genuine. That's very unlike him (mistake at the third last) but he's got a great old attitude and loves his racing."
