Stellar entry for Fighting FifthHeadlines
Rock On Ruby

Rock On Ruby, Cinders And Ashes and Countrywide Flame, the winners of the Champion, Supreme Novices' and Triumph Hurdle respectively, are among 14 entries for the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle on December 1.

Having been prepared by Paul Nicholls' former assistant Harry Fry when winning the Champion Hurdle, Rock On Ruby is now in Fry's sole care at his Seaborough base. He was last seen finishing third to Oscar Whisky in the Aintree Hurdle.

Cinders And Ashes could represent Donald McCain, who has won the last two renewals with Peddlers Cross and Overturn.

Countrywide Flame went close to winning the Cesarewitch for John Quinn when he last ran on the Flat.

Also in the mix is Nicky Henderson's Grandouet, who has been off for nearly a year since winning the International Hurdle in December. The trainer has also entered Darlan and Cash And Go, both due to run this weekend.

Noel Meade's Go Native, winner of the race back in 2009, is also in the mix, along with Charles Brynes' Trifolium.

Blue Bajan, Prospect Wells, Get Me Out Of Here and Noble Alan are also among the entries.

"We are delighted by the 14 entries in the race with this year's Champion Hurdle winner Rock On Ruby, now in the care of Harry Fry, leading a top-class turnout deserving of Grade One status," said Rory Jiwani of Stan James.

The sponsors bet 7-2 Rock On Ruby, Grandouet, 5-1 Cinders And Ashes, Darlan, 10-1 Go Native, Cash And Go, Countrywide Flame, 14-1 Get Me Out Of Here, 20-1 bar.
