One of the country's premier jump races; the Grade 1 Unibet Fighting Fifth Hurdle is staged on this raceday, and is part of the the Triple Crown of Hurdling.
Will Irving be back for a crack at a third victory in this prestigious event? Will we see the emergence of another star like 2016 runner-up Apple's Jade? Will the winner go on to Christmas & Champion Hurdle success? Could we see 2017 Champion Hurdle winner Buveur D'Air begin his 2017-18 campaign in the race... that's an option for Nicky Henderson.
The iconic Unibet Fighting Fifth features amongst an afternoon of fantastic jump racing at High Gosforth Park, which also includes the Listed At The Races Rehearsal Chase, which is 2016 saw top jumpers Otago Trail, Bristol De Mai and Definitely Red finish first to third respectively.
