Binocular has Fly in sightsHeadlines
Binocular

Binocular makes his seasonal debut in the BHP Insurance Irish Champion Hurdle.

Nicky Henderson's 2010 Champion Hurdle hero hasn't been seen since finishing fourth in last season's Cheltenham showdown, one place behind Hurricane Fly, who is hot favourite at Leopardstown on Sunday.

Frank Berry, racing manager to owner JP McManus, said: "He had a good break and was a little bit late going back to Nicky's. That's why he hasn't appeared. He's in good form and it's a lovely race to run him in with a small field and we hope he runs a big race."

Berry added: "Let's get Leopardstown out of the way and see how we get on. Hopefully he'll come on for the race and take it from there."

Eddie Harty's veteran Captain Cee Bee has picked up minor money behind Hurricane Fly the last twice and the trainer would be happy with a similar result.

He said: "He's in great form. He's a 12-year-old now and all you can hope for is a good run. He's enjoying himself over hurdles these days and I think his recent runs show he is entitled to take his chance in a race like this. If he runs as well as he did at Christmas, I'll be happy."
