With no racing in Britain today due to the recent heavy rain, Tony McCoy has made the trip over to take two mounts at Navan this afternoon.

The multiple champion rides the Eddie Harty-trained Like Your Style in the featured Ladbrokes Troytown Handicap Chase, and he also wears the colours of J P McManus in the following beginners chase aboard Alderwood.

Mark Walsh was due to ride both horses.

The meeting only got the go-ahead after an early morning inspection, with the going set to be extremely testing.

The fourth last fence and the last fence will both be omitted due to ground conditions.

Racing in Britain hit by floods

The recent deluge of rain to hit parts of Britain has greatly affected racing cross channel with no meetings on today, and the all-weather fixture at Southwell tomorrow has now been added to the list of abandonments.
