Upswing (green and yellow hoops) arrives late

Jonjo O'Neill had Tony McCoy to thank for the drawn-out success of Upswing in the Read Nicholls And McCain Exclusively On Betfair Handicap Hurdle at Newbury.

Rydon Pynes was starting to cut a lonely figure out in front and McCoy scented victory, galvanising the 11/4 favourite on the run-in to eventually collect by half a length.

"You've got to put that one down to the jockey," said O'Neill.

"For once he listened to me instead of doing his own thing! He's an all right horse, he is progressing but he's a bit soft. He'll go chasing next season."
