Here at StanJames.com, we’re delighted to bring you the first weekly blog from our new racing ambassador Nicky Henderson. And it’s a massive Saturday in store with the StanJames.com Fighting Fifth at Newcastle and the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury sharing top billing.

The Road To Cheltenham heads to the North East this weekend for the StanJames.com Fighting Fifth at Newcastle. Last year’s winner Irving is back to defend his crown and he resumes hostilities with Top Notch just a week after they did battle at Haydock.

 

First of all, some exciting news from StanJames.com with Nicky Henderson coming on board as its new racing ambassador. The most successful trainer in Cheltenham Festival history - 53 wins and counting - will be blogging weekly and writing daily blogs for the big meetings.

Well, I don’t think anyone saw that coming.... 

Faugheen was widely expected to make it 11 wins from 11 starts under rules last Sunday in the StanJames.com Morgiana at Punchestown but Ruby Walsh was throwing out distress signals on the 1-6 favourite turning for home and stablemate Nichols Canyon was not for passing.

The Road To Cheltenham resumes at 2.15pm on Sunday as 2015 Champion Hurdler Faugheen makes his seasonal reappearance in the StanJames.com Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown.
