Nicky Henderson has dropped a hint that My Tent Or Yours will stick to 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."

Thurles & Gowran both heavy

Following 3.1 milimetres of rain in the last 24 hours, the ground at Thurles is currently heavy on both tracks ahead of racing on Wednesday & Thursday.
