Lock stock and 7 smoking barrows!
The Cheltenham build-up continued on Tuesday morning when Nicky Henderson hosted a Festival press day at his Seven Barrows yard, readying an exciting team for two weeks' time.
The Lambourn handler is just two winners shy of becoming the Cheltenham Festival's all-time winning-most trainer, and William Hill quote 3-1 that he surpasses Fulke Walwyn's record of 40 winners on the opening day.
Henderson is 8-11 to record more winners than Paul Nicholls (evs), while the firm quote him as a 9-4 chance to take the Leading Trainer honours, ahead of 5-4 favourite Willie Mullins.
William Hill spokeswoman Lucy Rhodes said, "Year upon year the strength-in-depth of Henderson's squad seems to build, and surely it's only a matter of time for him to be crowned the Festival's all-time winning-most trainer"
