Grandouet could miss a clash with Hurricane Fly and Binocular in the Champion Hurdle as the gelding is set to ndergo investigative surgery in Newbury on Tuesday night for a problem with his near-hind leg that kept him out of the Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton last weekend.

Trainer Nicky Henderson admitted that there is a chance that Grandouet may miss Cheltenham saying “The plan is to flush the joint tonight and that should give us a clearer idea of the full extent of the injury.

“We’ll know a lot more in the morning about whether he’ll be able to run at Cheltenham. I’ll keep everyone informed.”

Grandouet is a top price 9/1 for the Champion Hurdle on the opening day of the Cheltenham festival.
