Nicky Henderson needs no introduction. In 1978 Nicky took out his trainers license, having been assistant to Fred Winter, before moving to Seven Barrows in 1992. Since then, he has been Champion NH Trainer 5 times and has trained over 2700 winners. He is famously formidable at the Cheltenham Festival and is the 2nd most successful trainer at the meeting with 60 winners, one behind Willie Mullins. He has won 7 Champion Hurdles, 5 Queen Mother Champion Chases and 2 Gold Cups.

Some of the greats of his stables include See You Then, Long Run, Caracciola, Bob’s Worth, Simonsig, the King of the two-mile chasing Sprinter Sacre, Might Bite, Buveur D'Air, and Altior.

In the last 10 seasons, his strike-rate has only dipped below 25% twice and in that time he has only had one season where he has sent out less than 124 winners.
