Fighting Fifth Hurdle Free Tips and Trends

Sponsored by leading bookmaker BetVictor, the Fighting Fifth Hurdle is a Grade 1 race is staged at Newcastle racecourse.

Having first been run in 1969 the contest is often seen as an early-season trial for the Champion Hurdle, with the Nicky Henderson-trained Punjabi (2008) and Buveur D’Air (2018) the last horses to win both races in the same season.

The 2017 and 2018 Champion Hurdle winner – Buveur d’Air – landed this race in 2017 before going onto Cheltenham glory again in March 2018, while he also took the prize in 2018 and was second in 2019.

Here at JUICESTORM we are on-hand to look back at past winners, and give you the key trends to look out for ahead of the 2020 renewal – this year run on Saturday 28th November 2020
