Tony McCoy will be in action at Ascot on Saturday despite being taken to hospital after falling from his horse at Wetherby.

The 17-time champion jockey was unseated from the Jonjo O'Neill-trained Mr Watson before the novices' hurdle.

McCoy, 38, was attended to by paramedics, but got to his feet before going to York Hospital.

He later said on Twitter: "My injury is very superficial just broke a few teeth and needed some stitches."

McCoy secured his 100th winner of the season at Hereford on Thursday.

Wetherby clerk of the course Jonjo Sanderson confirmed McCoy was stood down for the day.

"He's conscious and walking, but he has been referred to hospital in York - I believe as he has a bad facial injury," he said.

McCoy is booked for four rides at Ascot.
