Betfair Fighting Fifth

The Betfair Fighting Fifth Hurdle takes place at Newcastle on Saturday 28 November. This year’s renewal is the second since Betfair took over the sponsorship of the illustrious Grade 1 race. It should be a cracking contest, with Champion Hurdle heroine Epatante the ante-post favourite in a field of 10 declared runners. The much-fancied Sceau Royal is coming into the race in top form, though, and it’s worth remembering that last year’s winner Cornerstone Lad was a 16/1 shot.
