Gam's on for Henderson.

Byline: | Rockavon

Hargam ran out a workmanlike winner of the Grade 2 Triumph Hurdle Trial at Cheltenham.

Nicky Henderson's grey was sent off the 8-11 favourite and stayed on well close home under Tony McCoy to beat Karezak (9-2) by just over a length.

Henderson said: "I think that was a tough race, they went a good gallop in pretty testing ground.

It was a good performance, they came a long way clear.

"I thought his jumping was good, he's not the biggest horse and he'll definitely be slicker on slicker ground.

"The Triumph Hurdle is the objective and Tony McCoy is very much adamant you'll see a better horse on better ground."
