Bee set for Fly rematchHeadlines
Captain Cee Bee

Captain Cee Bee is likely to meet Hurricane Fly for the third time this season in the BHP Insurance Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown on January 27.

Although perhaps not the force he once was, the 12-year-old appears to have been revitalised by a return to the smaller obstacles and recorded an impressive victory at Tipperary in October.

He has since chased Hurricane Fly's shadow in both the Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown and the Festival Hurdle at Leopardstown, but has picked up minor money on both occasions and trainer Eddie Harty is happy to continue down the same route with his veteran.

"He came out of the race in good form and we were delighted with the way he ran," said Harty.

"All going well, the plan is for him to go back to Leopardstown for the Irish Champion Hurdle at the end of the month and we'll see how he gets on there."

Harty has yet to decide whether Captain Cee Bee will line up at this year's Cheltenham Festival, the scene of arguably his finest hour, having claimed the Supreme Novices' Hurdle back in 2008.

"The entries haven't closed yet, so we'll think about that later on," said the trainer.
