Friday round up
It was a facile win by My Tent or yours today and he was clearly a class above the opposition and I wouldnt get carried away too much by his reduction in price for his intended Cheltenham target The Supreme Novice where the opposition will be a whole lot hotter than today.
With the Betfair Hurdle an option next Henderson said after today's race "He's in there, he's had his three runs over hurdles and we did the same with Darlan last year. It's an option. He has got a lot of natural and raw talent, he just needs to learn how to use it. I worried a bit after his run on heavy ground at Newbury the other day but it's good to get him back on track. He still needs to relax a bit more, but he'll learn."
He is now 9/2 for the Newbury contest next month.
The New One bids to make it three wins in as many starts over obstacles in the Grade Two Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle at Warwick tomorrow for which he is a best priced 11/10 fav.
Nigel Twiston-Davies' charge was a wide-margin winner on his hurdling bow at Newton Abbot last October and followed up at Cheltenham later that month.
The trainer said: "We're very pleased with him and hopefully he will win it. He's done nothing wrong so far and everything should suit him, the distance, the conditions and the track. Hopefully all goes well and then we will see where we are."
