Ruby features in Champion entry16th January 2013
Titleholder Rock On Ruby is one of the last four winners among 34 entries for the Stan James Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham on March 12.
Hurricane Fly, successful in 2011, Binocular (2010) and Punjabi (2009) are the past champions who could try to regain their crown.
Last season it was Rock On Ruby's turn when he was officially in the hands of Paul Nicholls, but under the supervision of rookie trainer Harry Fry. And he made an encouraging seasonal reappearance for Fry when third behind fellow Champion hopefuls Zarkandar and Grandouet in the StanJames.com International Hurdle at Cheltenham in December.
