McCoy chasing Gold with That

Tony McCoy believes More Of That represents his best chance of winning another Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup.

The 18-times champion preferred At Fishers Cross to More Of That in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle and was proved wrong as the six-year-old, trained by Jonjo O'Neill and owned by JP McManus, maintained his unbeaten record.

McCoy, who chalked up another double century of winners this week, hopes the unbeaten six-year-old will switch to fences sooner rather than later and give him the opportunity of landing a third Gold Cup triumph after Synchronised in 2012 and Mr Mulligan in 1997.

"Jonjo had been telling me for the last three weeks to ride More Of That. I should have listened," he told Racing UK.

"The disappointing thing was I didn't ride him last week but the good thing is I am going to get to ride him and I think hopefully in the near future he could be a Gold Cup horse.

"I'd like to win another Gold Cup and he's my best chance, so the sooner he goes for it the better.

"The trainer knows best and the owner as well, but the Gold Cup is the Gold Cup."
