Tony McCoy has day to forget at Ffos Las

TONY McCoy has endured a rare day to forget at Ffos Las.

The 17-time champion jockey is by some distance the top jockey at the course. But he was beaten on two odds-on chances.

One of the those came in the richest race of the day — the Saxton Drilling Handicap Hurdle — when 10-11 shot The Bear Trap finished a well beaten fifth of six.

The prize went the way of Bobowen, who stormed back to form in the hands of Tom O'Brien. The seven-year-old, trained by Dr Richard Newland, won by 11 lengths from Qalinas.

McCoy's first odds-on defeat came in the opener, favourite backers getting off to the worst possible start when Bally Rone was turned over.

The five-year-old — like The Bear Trap trained by  Curtis —  was sent off at 4-9 in the maiden hurdle.

Second favourite Fishing Bridge eventually passed the post 28 lengths ahead of nearest pursuer Edgar Jones.
