Tony McCoy's final ride as a jockey is set to be Box Office in the Bet365 Handicap Hurdle at Sandown on Saturday.

As long as the ground is not considered too quick for the Jonjo O'Neill-trained runner, the legendary pilot will sign off in the famous green and gold silks of owner JP McManus, who McCoy has been so closely associated with for the past 10 years.

Box Office has run at both Cheltenham and Aintree, finishing seventh at both festivals and looking as if the step up to two and a half miles on Saturday will suit.

As yet, the only other definite ride for the soon-to-be 20-times champion jockey is Mr Mole in the race named in his honour, the Bet 365 AP McCoy Celebration Chase.

It was after Mr Mole won the Game Spirit Chase at Newbury in February that McCoy announced this would be his final season in the saddle.

"Whether Box Office runs is a little bit ground dependent, but it is our intention to do so," said Frank Berry, McManus' racing manager.

"If they water well and it is good, safe ground then I'm sure he'll run. There's also a bit of rain forecast which would be in his favour."

McCoy's ride in the Bet365 Gold Cup could rest on whether or not Rocky Creek runs.

With Willie Mullins already stating On His Own is more likely to run at the Punchestown Festival, the defection of Rocky Creek, who is 50-50 to run according to Paul Nicholls, would leave Bobs Worth at the head of the field and prompt a 5lb rise in the weights.

That would mean O'Neill's Lost Legend carrying 10st 8lb, a weight comfortably within McCoy's reach.
