Binocular is the 11/8 fav for the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle with Stan James, followed by Hurricane Fly (3/1).
The initial entries for the StanJames.com Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle on Saturday 27th November were announced at Noon and the race promises to be a vintage renewal of this most valuable and prestigious event; the first Grade 1 race of the jumps’ season in Britain.
Head of PR Charlie McCann: “This is our first year sponsoring the Fighting Fifth and what a way to start! The thought of the Champion Hurdler Binocular locking horns with Ireland’s finest Hurricane Fly and the unbeaten Peddlers Cross makes it potentially one of the great races of the season. We make Binocular the 11/8 favourite with the Fly at 3s and Peddlers Cross 9/2. Let’s hope all the principles stand their ground for what promises to be a fascinating contest.”
