Henderson hint over My Tent plans

Nicky Henderson appears to be favouring sticking to the novice route with Betfair Hurdle winner My Tent Or Yours.

The Seven Barrows handler has dropped a hint that he is likely to stay with the novices' route rather than moving up in grade to tackle the cream of the British and Irish hurdlers in the Stan James Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham next month.

After his impressive success in the Betfair Hurdle at the weekend, bookmakers introduced My Tent Or Yours into the Champion Hurdle betting with connections of the JP McManus-owned winner admitting that the contest would have to come into consideration.

Although making clear that no decision had yet been taken, Henderson appeared to be favouring the Supreme Novices' Hurdle when telling the Daily Mail: "JP's racing manager Frank Berry will be talking to him and AP and I will be involved. But everybody is forgetting JP has a Champion Hurdle horse anyway in (2010 champion hurdler) Binocular."
