David Bridgwater could turn to Tony McCoy for The Giant Bolster in the William Hill King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day.

Runner-up in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, the seven-year-old made a satisfactory return to action when third to Silviniaco Conti in the Betfair Chase at Haydock last month.

He was ridden on Merseyside by Tom Scudamore, who has been on board for eight of the gelding's last nine starts.

However, Scudamore would be required to ride Grands Crus for David Pipe should he take his chance.

Bridgwater said: "He's Tom's ride, but if Grands Crus runs he has to ride that, end of story. It's all up in the air, but I've been talking to (agent) Dave Roberts over the possibility of AP McCoy being free."
