My Tent Or Yours: Sound on Wednesday following pre-Cheltenham scare

Sky Bet

Nicky Henderson reports My Tent Or Yours to be sound again following a minor injury scare on Tuesday.

The leading Stan James Champion Hurdle contender was found to have sustained a small puncture wound to the sole of one of his feet, with Henderson assuming he had picked up the problem on Monday.

My Tent Or Yours is in good health now, though, with Henderson erring on the side of caution by giving the seven-year-old gelding a swim today rather than a canter.

"He's sound this morning, he was happy on his foot and he will be going for a swim today," said the champion trainer.

"He was virtually sound on it yesterday, to be honest, but he was just a bit cautious on his foot. Today he is happy back jogging on it and whatever else.

"One is never out of the woods with these things, so we're just going to give him a swim today and then the plan would be a canter tomorrow. He does enjoy swimming and it can freshen them up a bit. I'm very happy today and the farriers have done a great job, so many thanks to them."

My Tent Or Yours has already claimed two Grade Ones this term, landing the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle before following up in the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton on Boxing Day, when he beat fellow Champion Hurdle aspirant The New One.

He won a jumpers' bumper at Kempton last month to complete his Festival preparations.
