Analysis

Tony McCoy: "He probably learned a bit from the last day, and the horse in second was always going to keep going. I was all out to beat him at the end, and I'm glad I didn't take him on at the second-last as he might have beaten me. He travelled a bit sweeter, it's quite a demanding track and I wanted to nurse him a bit. Hopefully he can keep winning."
