McCoy's broken wrist

Quoting John McCririck on the back cover of McCoy's autobiography: 'The man is a colossus, we have never seen his like before'.

For once McCririck is right.

When McCoy broke his wrist in a heavy fall at Galway earlier this week, Richard Johnson will know that this particular misfortune presents him with an opportunity.

McCoy will be back by October as the core National Hunt season gets into swing.

In the meantime, Johnson can build up a lead in the champion jockey title race. Make no mistake, in any other era Johnson will have already achieved his goal of becoming champion jockey.

I don't currently have any prices but I suggest a wager on Johnson to achieve his lifetime's ambition this season.
