Heart problem forces Binocular retirement

The 2010 Champion Hurdle victor Binocular retires because of a "heart complaint".

Former Champion Hurdle winner Binocular has been retired on health grounds.

It has been discovered that the Nicky Henderson-trained gelding, who won the signature race at Cheltenham in 2010, has a heart problem.

"He has been retired - he had a little heart complaint," said Frank Berry, the racing manager to owner JP McManus.

Binocular also won Kempton's Christmas Hurdle twice.
