Ante-post favourite My Tent Or Yours has been allotted 11st in the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury on February 9.
The progressive six-year-old, owned by JP McManus, reinforced his claims at the head of the market with an impressive win at Huntingdon last week. His trainer Nicky Henderson has already lifted this prestigious handicap hurdle four times and is certain to saddle a strong team in search of a fifth.
Henderson's possible team includes the revitalised Petit Robin, who was runner-up to Cause Of Causes in The Ladbroke at Ascot last month.
Petit Robin has 11st 10lb, 2lb below top weight Celestial Halo, trained by Paul Nicholls.
Cause Of Causes, from Gordon Elliott's Irish yard, has been given 11st 3lb, while another McManus-owned horse, Get Me Out Of Here, bids to continue his fine record in this race. He came out on top in 2010 and was second to Zarkandar 12 months ago.
Swing Bowler is an interesting contender from the David Pipe stable, having returned from a near 10-month absence to take her perfect record over hurdles to three. The six-year-old mare has a handy 9st 13lb, but would be raised significantly in class.
Others to catch the eye include Grumeti (11st 4lb), Dark Lover (10st 13lb), Pearl Swan (10st 11lb), Punjabi (10st 10lb) and Cotton Mill (10st 10lb).
