Big guns please HendersonHeadlines
Bobs Worth (left) works at Kempton with Long Run (centre) and Binocular

Nicky Henderson was left perfectly satisfied as he worked a high-profile Cheltenham team after racing at Kempton.

Leading Betfred Gold Cup contenders Long Run and Bobs Worth were joined by former Champion Hurdle hero Binocular in an illustrious party of three, while Kid Cassidy, Riverside Theatre and Triumph Hurdle favourite Rolling Star were also in action.

Long Run, under Nico De Boinville, led his two stablemates, picking up the pace on the final circuit of a blowout lasting roughly two miles. He was pushed out quite vigorously before Bobs Worth and Barry Geraghty finished just ahead, with Binocular (Tony McCoy) hard-held upsides.

Henderson said: "That was great. Bobs Worth was the one we were trying to get the work into most. Barry said you wouldn't want to leave him alone and he will work again next weekend, but I have to say he worked very well.

"We let Long Run lob along, he has been quite lazy and we are thinking about using cheekpieces at Cheltenham. Binocular is really well and he found it very easy as he was working with three-mile chasers.

"Kid Cassidy was a bit keen, but that's just him and he's had a good gallop. Andrew Tinkler was very happy with Rolling Star, he was good, and Riverside Theatre seems in great form. He has been very good at home."

Henderson added that he hoped to take another Champion Hurdle contender in Grandouet to Newbury next Sunday for a gallop.
