Tony McCoy

Tony McCoy (pictured) is set for "a few days" on the sidelines after again feeling the effects of a shoulder injury suffered at Worcester a month ago.

The perennial champion jockey was initially sidelined for short spell after taking a crashing fall from the Rebecca Curtis-trained Keep Presenting on October 9, but he was stood down after riding at Wetherby the following week.

McCoy has been in action every day since the start of the month, filling the runner-up spot on each of his two rides at Chepstow on Wednesday, but he missed his only booked ride at Towcester yesterday and appears increasingly likely to miss the weekend action.

His agent Dave Roberts said: "He's going to have a few days off as he is still sore.

"I'm going to speak to him later on and hopefully we might know more then."
