MY TENT OR YOURS, who had been due to run at Kempton on Sunday, has been declared a non-runner.
Last season's Champion Hurdle runner-up was supposed to begin his season at Kempton, the track where he gained his last two victories, including in the 2013 Christmas Hurdle, in the race The New One has harvested for the last three years.
However trainer Nicky Henderson withdrew him over concerns about the going, which is officially good.
Stablemate Hargam, tenth in the Champion Hurdle and third at Tipperary in this month's Istabraq Hurdle, still goes in the race (4.10).
"You have to crack on because after this race there's a huge gap before anything else happens for these horses," Henderson said. "Hargam takes a lot of hard work. He needed the run very badly in Ireland and it was very soft. He'll be much happier on this ground."
Mister Miyagi, the new favourite, has won three out of four over hurdles, his only defeat coming in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle, in which he was sixth.
Trainer Dan Skelton said: "This race may just blow the cobwebs off. I'd like to move him up in trip after this."
