Hurricane Fly: Up in trip for seasonal reappearance at Fairyhouse on Sunday

Hurricane Fly: Up in trip for seasonal reappearance at Fairyhouse on Sunday

Hurricane Fly returns to action in Sunday's Bar One Racing Hatton's Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse - and Willie Mullins insists the trip isn't an issue.

His charge was last seen winning the Rabobank Champion Hurdle over two miles at Punchestown in April and his last five runs have been over that trip.

However on Sunday he races over two and a half miles for the first time since he was beaten in a French Grade One in June 2008.

The trainer said: "He is fine. He is well able for the two miles, four furlongs and we are looking forward to Sunday.

"He will be joined by Mourad who is dropping back in trip but should run well."

Solwhit is the only horse to beat Hurricane Fly since that French defeat and also finished runner-up at Punchestown.

The pair clash again on Sunday and trainer Charles Byrnes is confident of a big performance after the six-year-old landed the Morgiana Hurdle on his seasonal bow.

Byrnes said: "Solwhit is in good form. He won over this distance in Aintree on good ground so he should be fine over this trip for Sunday."
