Hurricane Fly tops 12 six-day acceptors for the Stan James Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham.

The defending champion is one of three entries for trainer Willie Mullins who also has Thousand Stars and Zaidpour still in the race.

Paul Nicholls has four intended runners at this stage headed by Zarkandar, with last year's JCB Triumph Hurdle hero joined by Brampour, Celestial Halo and Rock On Ruby.

Nicky Henderson relies solely on Binocular with Kalann, Olofi, Oscars Well and Overturn completing the field.
