My Tent Or Yours confirmed his well-being for the Stan James Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival following a pleasing workout at Seven Barrows.

Nicky Henderson said the two-times Grade One winner has now recovered from a wound in a sole of a foot which had led to a slight concern over his participation in the big race on the opening day of the Festival.

My Tent Or Yours, winner of the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle and the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton this winter, will again flex his muscles in a spin on Friday, although the champion trainer has repeatedly stressed all of his significant work for Cheltenham was completed some time ago.

Henderson said: "He's 100 per cent fine and he cantered this morning.

"He'll work again tomorrow and he's absolutely fine.

"In terms of how he is, he's where he was last week and the week before that."

My Tent Or Yours warmed up for the Champion Hurdle with a jumpers' bumper victory at Kempton last month and is as big as 5-1 for Cheltenham glory.
