Uttoxeter: Another pair makes it four in a row for McCoy.
TONY McCOY, who took the last two races at Hereford on Wednesday, made it four wins on the bounce when successful on Westender and Ashley Muck-his only rides of the day-to take him within three of his fastest-ever century.
Westender, who hacked up in the two-mile novice hurdle, and Ashley Muck, who was an even easier scorer in the two-mile-five-furlong handicap chase, made light of a tortuous journey from Martin Pipe's West Country stables after being diverted off the M5 because of an accident.
The trainer's son David Pipe said: "Westender only just got here in the nick of time for the opener, and the lads bringing the horses up did very well to get here."
Ashley Muck's bloodless victory in the handicap chase saw the gelding complete a five-timer over fences. His fluent jumping should ensure there are more races for him to win this autumn.
Both Pipe winners are jointly-owned by Matt Archer and Jean Broadhurst.
