Hurricane Fly: Exciting connections ahead of his title defence

Willie Mullins is delighted with Hurricane Fly as he continues preparations for the defence of his Stan James Champion Hurdle crown.

The reigning champion made a belated return to action when winning the BHP Insurance Irish Champion at Leopardstown last month and the trainer is thrilled with him since.

"Hurricane Fly is fantastically well at the moment. Paul (Townend) rides him out every day at home and he said he's jumping out of his skin.

"He had a nice easy week last week and he'll have another easy one this week before we start building him up for Cheltenham. I've been very happy with him," he beamed.
