My Tent Or Yours could go novice chasing when the jumps season moves through the gears later in the year.

Nicky Henderson's seven-year-old finished second in the Champion Hurdle in March, but he has been continually blighted by head-strong tendencies.

Connections of the Grade One-winning hurdler are now considering a new vocation.

Henderson told Channel 4 Racing: "We are thinking along the lines of schooling him over a fence and see what AP (Tony McCoy) thinks, then make a decision."

Stablemate Bobs Worth, the 2013 Gold Cup hero, could again run in the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury in February - a race he won in 2012.

The nine-year-old gelding excelled in the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown over Christmas but turned in a curious effort when only fifth in his defence of the Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival.

Henderson said: "You'd probably want to have some sort of a (prep) race (before the Hennessy).

"He has not got a real robust constitution. You couldn't have run him again after Cheltenham."
