Oscar Whisky: Will he stay three miles?

View from the Oscar Whisky camp ahead of Thursday's Ladbrokes World Hurdle at Cheltenham.

The seven-year-old finished third in last year's Champion Hurdle before winning the Aintree Hurdle over half a mile further, prompting connections to step up to the staying races.

Henderson said: "He's not a Champion Hurdle horse. I know he was third last year and he's improved a bit as well, but we've got to try this race.

"He's very good, in really good shape and it's all a matter of if he stays.

"If he does, then we're capable of giving Big Buck's a race."
