Champion jockey Tony McCoy has claimed the 4,000th winner of his career with victory in the Weatherbys Novices' Hurdle at Northamptonshire's Towcester racecourse.
The 39-year-old rode the Jonjo O'Neill-trained Mountain Tunes to victory in the 15:10.
McCoy failed to reach the milestone earlier in the day when the 3/1 favourite Church Field fell just short in the Agetur UK Handicap Hurdle.
