Jockey AP McCoy rode his 200th winner of the season at Haydock on Wednesday.

The 18-time champion reached the landmark for the first time since the 2010-11 season with a victory on Palermo Don, trained by Donald McCain.

Northern Irishman McCoy, 39, is on track to win his 19th consecutive title at the end of next month.

Despite missing a month at the start of this season through injury, he is more than 60 wins in front of nearest challenger Richard Johnson.

McCoy reached the unprecedented milestone of 4,000 career jump racing winners at Towcester in November.

He rode at Haydock after a short break in Portugal following a fall at last week's Cheltenham Festival.
