Nicky Henderson is still intending to run Charli Parcs in the JCB Triumph Hurdle despite his fall at Kempton on Saturday.

Jockey Barry Geraghty has been ruled out of the Cheltenham Festival following the spill, but the horse has shown no ill effects and came through a schooling session on Wednesday morning.

He had been prominent in the betting for the Supreme Novices' Hurdle as well as the Triumph, but the Festival curtain raiser now appears to have been ruled out.

"He's been perfectly fine since Saturday and in fact he had a little school indoors this morning while Yogi (Breisner) was down and went very well," Henderson said at a Cheltenham press conference.

"I think we were always leaning towards the Triumph and that's still the case. If he's in good form, I think he will come here.

"Divin Bere could also end up going in the same race. We'll have to see how the weights work out for the Fred Winter."
