Constitution Hill a huge drifter ahead of planned return in Fighting Fifth



CONSTITUTION HILL is a huge drifter in the market ahead of his planned return in the Fighting Fifth at Sandown on Saturday.

The unbeaten superstar hurdler was as short as 1-3 to win the Grade 1 but is now as big as 4-7.

The Fighting Fifth has been rearranged for the Tingle Creek meeting after Newcastle was cancelled last weekend.

Shishkin is currently set to join his Nicky Henderson stablemate in the two-mile hurdle race.

But Constitution Hill’s price is a sea of red on Oddschecker – indicating people think he won’t run.


Everything else in the contest – which Constitution Hill won en route to Champion Hurdle success last year – is being backed.

Constitution Hill remains the fav but Love Envoi has been backed into 7-4 with You Wear It Well as short as 3-1.

Shishkin is a best-price 8-1 in his intended warm up for the King George at Kempton on Boxing Day, the three-mile chase for which he is the same price.

Irish Point is a general 10s shot while Goshen is into 12-1.

Not So Sleepy, who dead-heated in this race two years ago against Epatante, is a best-price 33s while Benson is the outsider of the lot at 200-1.
