Verdict

My Tent Or Yours is a high-class hurdler, as he showed when easily winning the Fighting Fifth at Newcastle on his reappearance. It's difficult to see either third Grumeti or sixth Duke Of Navan reversing the form here. But THE NEW ONE was equally impressive in landing a Grade 2 at Cheltenham 12 days ago when the ground was arguably faster than ideal. Sam Twiston-Davies is likely to have his mount up with the pace throughout on this sharper track and he can run the finish off Nicky Henderson's six-year-old. Sametegal, third in last season's Triumph Hurdle, has some useful form to his name but may struggle to make an impact against a couple of genuine Champion Hurdle contenders.
