Nicky Henderson delighted with My Tent Or Yours gallop

The 2014 Champion Hurdle runner-up missed last season through injury but is in line to return to action at Wincanton next weekend.

Barry Geraghty rode My Tent Or Yours, with Tony McCoy partnering stablemate Hargam. The pair jumped four hurdles but none in the home straight. My Tent Or Yours tracked Hargam into the straight before moving alongside his stablemate between the two- and one-furlong poles.

Geraghty eased his mount ahead inside the last 100 yards and he finished around a length in front.

“It was absolutely perfect and it would have done both horses the world of good,” said Henderson.

“Hargam was the obvious horse to work him with, not for the fact that he is JP’s (McManus) but Hargam needs serious work and that was perfect for him considering he was only here as the hare.

“It’s been awfully stop-start with My Tent and the main issue has been a sore shin. It’s just been niggle after niggle.

“We’ve got behind and we’ve been looking at doing something like this for a while.
