Everyone will be queuing up to get a look at MY TENT OR YOURS as he completes his preparations for the Champion Hurdle. Nicky Henderson won't want him to have a hard race but he should still make short work of these given he's already won two Grade 1s over timber this season and was second in the 2012 Champion Bumper at The Festival. Ranjaan, a fair hurdler in his own right, was second to Sgt Reckless over this course and distance last month and could be booked for the runner's-up spot again with Capellanus fancied to sneak into the frame under Richard Johnson ahead of the four-year-old Dispour.
