Henderson excited for Punchestown test

16th April 2018, 12:45 by Tom Hill

Trainer Nicky Henderson has confirmed My Tent Or Yours will be fit to run in the BETDAQ Punchestown Champion Hurdle on April 28.

The 11-year-old has only raced twice this season, winning at Cheltenham in the Unibet International Hurdle.

He was back in action at Aintree last week, finishing fourth in the Aintree Hurdle but the ground was softer than connections wanted.

Despite the disappointing run, My Tent Or Yours came through unscathed and Henderson is ready for the Punchestown Festival.

He told reporters: "I think My Tent Or Yours is a definite for Punchestown.

"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."
