Connections of My Tent Or Yours have not ruled out supplementing the impressive Betfair Hurdle winner for the Stan James Champion Hurdle.

While the William Hill Supreme Novices' Hurdle that kicks off the first day of the Cheltenham Festival remains the likely target, there is a possibility My Tent Or Yours could switch to the big race on the card.

My Tent Or Yours is hot favourite for the Supreme, but the Nicky Henderson-trained gelding staked a strong claim to be added to the Champion field when making a mockery of what should have been a highly-competitive race for the valuable handicap hurdle at Newbury.

The victory came just days after owner JP McManus lost his main Champion Hurdle hope Darlan in a fatal fall at Doncaster.

"Nicky was delighted with the way he won and how he came out of the race," McManus' racing manager Frank Berry told At The Races.

"I'd be surprised if he doesn't go down the novice route, but you never know what might happen."
