My Tent Or Yours has been given the green light by Nicky Henderson to contest the BETDAQ Punchestown Champion Hurdle on April 28.

The veteran finished fourth in the Aintree Hurdle last week on just his second start of the season on ground that would have been softer than ideal.

"I think My Tent Or Yours is a definite for Punchestown," said Henderson.

"I thought that he ran really well at Aintree on Thursday and he didn't go to Cheltenham, so we'll have another go at the Champion Hurdle. We might also bring Charli Parcs over for the same race.

"We've got one or two others on the shortlist for Punchestown and I think the ground could be the best of any of the Festivals. It's a terrific week and we've had some wonderful days there over the years."
