Celestial Halo: Hurdling again after spell over fences.

Celestial Halo: Hurdling again after spell over fences.

Celestial Halo returns to timber in Saturday's Unicorn Homes Relkeel Hurdle at Cheltenham - and owner Andy Stewart is looking forward to it.

Paul Nicholls' charge has been novice chasing this season but failed to take to fences and now the former Champion Hurdle runner-up is setting out on a road that could take him to the Ladbrokes World Hurdle in March.

"He got round at Newbury last time but he hated it, so we're looking forward to getting him back over hurdles," said Stewart, who also owns the dominant force in the staying division, Big Buck's.

"He's done nothing wrong at home and has been schooling well. Ruby still maintains that if he hadn't fallen on Grand National day he'd have won.

"We were thinking about running him back over two miles in the International, but Barry Hills (former trainer) has always told me he'll stay three miles."
