Racing post

A McCoy was missing from The McCoys but inside Cheltenham's vast Centaur hall there was most definitely a Ruby, who stole the show along with Judith Chalmers' son.

The programme stated the evening's final award, supported by title sponsor Dodson & Horrell, would be of the outstanding contribution variety.

Given among those in attendance was Ruby Walsh, the most successful jockey in Cheltenham Festival history and now retired from raceriding, the odds about who would lift that award were always short. Those odds were quite rightly landed. First, though, let us return to Judith's boy.

Mark Durden-Smith presents rugby union coverage on Channel 5. On this occasion he joined Hayley Moore to present a ceremony celebrating the heroes of the 2018-19 jumps season across Jockey Club Racecourses. Durden-Smith made quite an impression.

He explained that Sir Anthony McCoy, who gives his name to the event, was this year in Scotland, taking part in the Alfred Dunhill golf pro-am competition.

"I think it's a gauge of how much these awards mean to him that he's not here tonight," said Durden-Smith, linking to a video in which McCoy explained he could hardly turn down the chance to share some Scottish links action with the likes of Rory McIlroy and Justin Timberlake.

That meant Timberlake was also missing from The McCoys, as was another keen golfer, JP McManus. "He didn't play great today," said McManus's racing manager Frank Berry in a quiet, sombre voice as he received McManus's leading owner prize.
