Following on from the Betfair Chase last Saturday, British fans look to Newcastle for their fix of Grade One action this weekend.

2022 Fighting Fifth Hurdle Entries

Epatante ran out a ready winner of the 2020 Fighting Fifth on her first visit to Newcastle. Nicky Henderson's mare was forced to share this prize with Not So Sleepy 12 months ago, and went on to win her second Christmas Hurdle at Kempton, before following Honeysuckle home in the Champion Hurdle.

Nicky Henderson confirmed on Wednesday that Constitution Hill will also contest Saturday's main event. Last year's runaway Supreme Novices' Hurdle winner had been expected to head to the International Hurdle following his withdrawal at Ascot last weekend. However, Henderson dropped the bombshell that both his star hurdlers would run at Newcastle this weekend, prompting Betfair into cutting Constitution Hill into 1/4 favouritism.

Not So Sleepy returns to Newcastle on the back of a cracking run in the Cesarewitch at Newmarket. Gordon Elliott's four-year-old Pied Piper has won a couple of times already this season and he could step back up into Grade One company.

Tommy's Oscar could drop back to hurdles, after a poor round of jumping over fences at Cheltenham last time out. Iain Jardine's ten-year-old, Voix Du Reve is the fifth and final entrant.
