Shark angling for Newcastle glory
Shark Hanlon is targeting the StanJames.com Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle with Hidden Cyclone.
Hidden Cyclone: Set to run in the Fighting Fifth
The popular veteran has been as good as ever of late but was not confirmed for the Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown on Sunday.
He will instead travel to England for the Grade One Fighting Fifth on Saturday week.
Hanlon said: "Willie (Mullins) has a very strong hand in the race on Sunday (Morgiana Hurdle), and the Fighting Fifth can often cut up to a fairly small field.
"He's in good form, and it comes at a nice time after his last race."
Harchibald (twice), Go Native and Identity Thief last year have all taken the Fighting Fifth prize back to Ireland since the turn of the century.
