Fighting Fifth Hurdle: Runner-by-runner guide as six go to post for Newcastle Grade One, live on Sky Sports Racing | Racing News

Five of the Fighting Fifth Hurdle runners last year have returned to fight, with young children pretending to be Monmiral.

We hope we do not see the recurrence of Not So Sleepy’s assassination last season, when he dropped Paddy Brennan for the first time and carried the Silver Streak a second time.

It would be great to see Champion Hurdler Epatante 2020 come back well, but after a disappointing campaign, he has a lot to prove. Will prisoner Nicky Henderson succeed in repeated redress? Find out more about Sky Sports Racing on Saturday at 3.15pm.


Jockey: Sean Bowen, Coach: Paul Nicholls

Monmiral skipped last season’s Cheltenham Festival, heading to Aintree where they won the 1st Doom Bar Anniversary 4-YO Juvenile Hurdle, the final mistake from a runner.

That look was also enhanced in the Greatwood Hurdle, but as they jump and run smoothly, these are the best horses they have ever encountered and may have been able to deal with the soft ground, due to their knee flexion.

Do not sleep like this

The champion who started the campaign in the race last year before winning the prestigious Ascot competition and running well in Champion Hurdle for the fifth time.

Underneath his merits in Aintree Hurdle, but he probably found the trip stretching him down with a lot of water.

He travels to Newcastle after a spectacular game 36 days ago so exercise would not be a problem and dangerous if he was left alone up front.

The Royal Seal

A: Daryl Jacob, T: Alan King

Although he has always struggled with fences, he seems to be heading into this year’s Fighting Fifth neatly organized over minor obstacles.

He was well-kept by Epatante at the end of the season, but dropped out later than he should have been.

With two runs under his belt this campaign, a good position and a fast pace, the race puts him in a good position to get closer.

Silver Streak
Silver Streak are calling for a return to form this week

Silver Streak

A: Adam Wedge T: Evan Williams

He looked unhealthy in the first half of last season, his jumping is very successful and he is changing to more advanced methods.

He beat Epatante in a Christmas crisis in Kempton, but the form dropped after him and he just got better behind Sceau Royal 41 days ago and his jump was incorrect.

If he does well, along with his jump and return to Christmas form last year, he is a great player.

Words Of Dreams

A: Conor O’Farrell T: Iain Jardine

The fourth best run behind Epatante in this race last season was in the first cheeks before he ran the best races across obstacles and fences.

None of that form makes him capable of winning here yet, and frankly, this seems like a daunting task.


A: Aidan Coleman T: Nicky Henderson

Although he won the race in an amazing way last season, he did not come close to regaining his best form.

Past issues may have been the cause of this, and the connection will hope that the surgery she underwent in the summer will end the problem.

The 2020 Epatante at Cheltenham confirms its price of 11/10, but last season’s Epatante does not mean the market needs a check.

Declan’s main decision

With Not Sleepy and Silver Streak running, along with Monmiral and Voix Du Reve who appeared for the first time, this year’s Fifth Fight must be run quickly and fairly. This hopefully means that the best horses win.

In a high-profile game, Epatante is undoubtedly the horse to hit, but it looks like Epatante is set to arrive on Saturday after a vicious 2020/21 campaign.

Back surgery and the ropes of his trainers in good health could make him recover well, but it is a fictional game, so he is passed through the trees. The same goes for Monmiral on 3/1 meaning Sceau Royal and Silver Streak are looking for two of the best betting strategies.

Coach Nicky Henderson says Epatante is fine but expects a tough task as he defends his Fighting Fifth crown at Newcastle on Saturday, sitting at Sky Sports Racing.

They are the ones who are coming into the competition in a very organized way and the finalist may be harassed further by Not So Sleepy, The Royal Seal (9/2) agrees.

The market can say that Epatante is back to its best, Sceau Royal is worth looking at in a ‘no-favored’ market where anything beyond 2/1 can be exciting.

I’m just waiting for Newcastle’s watering this week, the rainy season is coming, it doesn’t ruin this card and the chance to pick.
