My Tent Or Yours is currently the 7/4 favourite in a field which he faces fancies such as Jezki and Un Atout.
Another high class Seven Barrows resident is Sprinter Sacre who is 1/4 to win the Queen Mother Champion Chase and has been many punters Ante Post banker of the week.
Henderson has two excellent chances in the Gold Cup with former winner Long Run being a 13/2 shot and the classy Bobs Worth being priced up at 11/4 favourite.

Question marks lie over his ability to stay the marathon trip but Henderson quickly nipped them in the bud when asked the question on the matter “I think he proved it (that he stays) in the Cleeve and we’ve got to accept it. Obviously, it has made a difference without Big Buck’s, there’s no denying it. It’s opened the race up completely.” Oscar Whiskey is 4/1 joint favourite for the World Hurdle
