Following on from the Betfair Chase last Saturday, British fans look to Newcastle for their fix of Grade One action this weekend. The Fighting Fifth Hurdle has been won by many of the sports top two-mile hurdlers down the years and the highest-rated hurdler in training will again make his reappearance at Newcastle on Saturday.

Here's our free guide to the 2023 Fighting Fifth Hurdle, including our best betting tips.

2023 Fighting Fifth Hurdle Tips

Let's face it, if Constitution Hill turns up on Saturday, then he should win by a landslide. Nicky Henderson's stable star could underperform by a stone and still be far too good for this lot.

The race to finish second behind Constitution Hill is a much more interesting affair. Love Envoi sits a clear second in the market, but her best form has come over two-and-a-half miles and Harry Fry's mare looked very rusty on her first start of last season.

Former winner, Not So Sleepy can be backed at 20/1, which is only a shade bigger than the 16s that's available on YOU WEAR IT WELL. Jamie Snowden's star won the Mares' Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham last season and was too hardy for Luccia when the pair met in the bet365 Mares' Hurdle at Wetherby last month.

Unlike Love Envoi and Not So Sleepy, You Wear It Well has the benefit of a run this season and remains open to further improvement. Whether you back You Wear It Well each-way in the winners market, in the "betting without Constitution Hill" special market, or in a forecast with the odds-on favourite is up to you. I do think there's value in backing Gavin Sheehan's mount to follow Constitution Hill home.
