My Tent set for Kempton bumper

My Tent Or Yours is the star attraction in the kempton.co.uk "Jumpers' Bumper" National Hunt Flat Race at Kempton on Sunday.

Trained by Nicky Henderson, the JP McManus-owned seven-year-old has won the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle and the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton this season, beating The New One on Boxing Day.

Henderson last week ruled out a possible trip to Wincanton for this weekend's Kingwell Hurdle due to the prevailing heavy ground, and decided against a trip to Scotland for the Morebattle Hurdle at Kelso.

Speaking at the Grand National weights lunch on Tuesday, Henderson said: "He's in very good form, everything has been great.

"We sort of thought we'd like a race. We didn't enter him in the Kingwell but we toyed with going to Kelso for the Morebattle.

"Therefore Kempton will come into the equation, maybe even a couple of times.

"It's just to get the freshness out of him a little bit, otherwise he can get a little bit keen early on in his races."

Others among an entry of 50 for the race are the Philip Hobbs-trained Menorah, Henderson's Rajdhani Express and the all-weather star La Estrella.
