AP McCoy set for return to Down Royal

Northern Ireland's AP McCoy is to ride at Down Royal for only the second time in his 18 years as champion jump jockey.

McCoy from Moneyglass in County Antrim will ride in a hurdle race on Friday, 1 November - the first day of the Northern Ireland Festival of Racing.

His only other appearance at the course near Lisburn was in 2008 when he steered Jered to a hurdle victory.
