Henderson outlines trio plan
Nicky Henderson has revealed he will take Santini, On The Blind Side and Might Bite to school over fences at Newbury on Sunday.
All three runners are building towards the Cheltenham Festival, with Might Bite a Gold Cup contender and both Santini and On The Blind Side set to feature in the RSA Chase.
Henderson is keen to give the trio a run out at Newbury this weekend, ahead of the highly-anticipated Festival.
He said: "I am bringing Santini, On The Blind Side and Might Bite here on Sunday morning. They are going to jump some fences down the back straight.
"I just want Santini and On The Blind Side to have a little pop over fences as they have missed races, while it will do Might Bite good.
"The racecourse has been great in helping us here. I am only bringing those three as I took the rest to Kempton on Tuesday and that all went well.
"These ones just need to jump a fence and get them on some grass. I know exactly what we are going to do. They are all going to jump the five fences down the back straight and then come round and On The Blind Side and Santini will then jump the five down the back again.
"Might Bite will jump the five down the back first time, but if he does that well he probably won't do it second time round. Might Bite won't work as he did that at Kempton on Tuesday, whereas the other two will finish up with a gallop."
