Tony McCoy praises Synchronised after Gold Cup win

Jockey Tony McCoy praises the "amazing" Synchronised after his Cheltenham Gold Cup victory, saying he always believed the horse could deliver results as he is "all heart".

The 8-1 shot grabbed the lead over the final fence and held off the challenge of 50-1 outsider The Giant Bolster.

Two-time victor Kauto Star, ridden by Ruby Walsh, was pulled up in the early stages and McCoy says Walsh "definitely" made the right decision not to finish the race.
