He was unseated as he took Capall Eile over a fence early in the Hildon Beginners' Steeple Chase.

McCoy was on the ground for some time and the field had to be diverted around the obstacle in question next time around.

Eventually he was helped into an ambulance and it appeared he had a serious ankle injury, though not a break.

It meant other jockeys had to fill in for his remaining two rides of the afternoon - one of them, Paul Moloney, going on to complete a double when he guided odds-on favourite Lady Hillingson, which should have ridden by McCoy, to victory in the next race.
