Hurricane the best of Montjeu's hurdling sons

HURRICANE Fly beat odds-on favourite Solwhit for the second time to land Fairyhouse's Grade 1Hatton's Grace Hurdle, cementing the son of Montjeu's claims as a Champion Hurdle contender.

His sire is already well-known for producing top-class middle-distance Flat performers such as Hurricane Run, Motivator and Papal Bull, but has also sired high-class hurdlers such as Won In The Dark and Blue Bajan.

The six-year-old is out of Scandisk, whose offspring include Hunzy, a winner on theFlat in Italy.
