Double delight is lucky for McCoy; RACING.

CHAMPION jockey Tony McCoy enjoyed the rub of the green for an 11-1 double on Vulcanite and Stravita at Hereford.

McCoy felt Vulcanite only won because of Salden Licht's ring-rustiness after 606 days off, while Stravita capitalised on a final-flight fall to claim her success.

The Charlie Longsdontrained Vulcanite (evens favourite) took the Novices' Chase by three-quarters of a length after a good jump enabled him to see off Salden Licht, the pair both making their chasing debuts.

"He's got a bit to learn jumping. He got a bit close to the third-last," McCoy said.

"He didn't have much of an idea about it. He lost momentum and for a simply novicey thing he lost a bit of ground.

"Alan's (King) horse had been off a long time and my horse probably won't beat him again."
