My Tent Or Yours tops 19 six-day entries for the William Hill Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham.

Nicky Henderson's charge has been a short-priced favourite for the opening contest of the Festival since his brilliant win in the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury and could be joined in the field by stablemate River Maigue.

Jezki, owned like the market leader by JP McManus, spearheads a strong Irish team which includes Un Atout. His trainer Willie Mullins has also left in Champagne Fever, Mozoltov and Pique Sous.

Mouse Morris' Rule The World has been left in the race along with Gordon Elliott's Cause Of Causes and Dermot Weld's Rock Critic.

Tolworth Hurdle winner Melodic Rendezvous and Paul Nicholls' Dodging Bullets are other leading fancies for the home team, along with previous bumper winner Cheltenian.

The field is completed by Fire King, Flying Cross, Ifandbutwhynot, I Shot The Sheriff, Ostentation and Puffin Billy.
