So easy for 'The Hurricane'

If yesterdays blockbuster card at Cheltenham wasn't enough then Hurricane Fly showed why he is perhaps the best hurdler since the great Istabraq with a effortless success in The Irish Champion Hurdle and registering his 3rd successive win in the Leopardstown showpiece.

AP McCoy was called into question for his ride on the 3rd placed Binocular with several believing he did not do everything on his power to obtain the best possible position but in ground that he hated on his seasonal debut McCoy would have been foolish to have knocked the guts out of the 2010 Champion Hurdle winner on his seasonal debut in a hopeless task against the brilliant Hurricane Fly who after losing his crown in last years Champion Hurdle after a interrupted preparation looks right back to his very best the season with trainer Willie Mullins stating that he has had a clear run with his stable star this season. It will take a hell of a performance to prevent this brilliant 8yo regaining his Champion Hurdle crown on March 12th.
