Henderson schools his big guns
It was a busy Friday morning at Seven Barrows as Nicky Henderson schooled many of his big novice chase hopes for the forthcoming season.
Buveur D'Air was among those who schooled
Stars like Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle hero Altior, Aintree Grade One scorer Buveur D'Air, top-class hurdler My Tent Or Yours and Grade Two winner Protek Des Flos were all in action.
"Everything went very well," said Henderson.
"It was a busy morning and Barry (Geraghty) and Nico (de Boinville) were in.
"With the ground as it is they won't be running for a while yet but it's the time of year they need to get off the ground.
"They've all got work to do before they run but maybe we can start looking around for races in about a month's time."
