Henderson team ready for LadbrokeHeadlines
Petit Robin

Nicky Henderson is aiming to improve on his already excellent record in The Ladbroke at Ascot when he saddles four runners.

The Seven Barrows maestro landed the huge pot in 2002 with Chauvinist, 2007 with Jack The Giant and 12 months later with Sentry Duty.

Involved in a battle to become champion trainer with Paul Nicholls, Henderson is chasing the massive amount of prize money on offer with Cash And Go, Lyvius, top-weight Petit Robin and First In The Queue.

Stable jockey Barry Geraghty has chosen to ride Cash And Go, a Grade One winner in Ireland for Edward O'Grady.

Useful 5lb conditional Jerry McGrath is on Gerry Feilden winner Lyvius, amateur Nico De Boinville will take 7lb off Petit Robin, who has reverted to hurdles with two wins, and Andrew Tinkler partners First In The Queue. With the ground set to be as testing as it gets at Ascot, their ability to handle the conditions will be crucial.

"Petit Robin has won on soft ground, Cash And Go has form in soft ground and Lyvius won the Gerry Feilden in soft ground," said Henderson.

"There is nowhere else for them to go, there is huge prize money on offer so we have to let them take their chance. Thankfully I have don't have to pick between them. Cash And Go and Lyvius have shown high-class form over hurdles, so we'll see what happens."
