Constitution Hill's first stop of the season!

Constitution Hill jumping a hurdle at Newcastle


Constitution Hill is set to make his seasonal reappearance in the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle.

Seven Barrows trainer Nicky Henderson will be hoping his stable superstar wins the race for the second season in a row after romping to a 12l success on his previous visit to Newcastle.

Constitution Hill’s presence is likely to scare off rivals but 2021 winner Not So Sleepy and Cheltenham Festival scorer Love Envoi are among the horses that could have a crack at the king.

You can run the rule over our antepost Fighting Fifth Hurdle odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.
