Overturn could have another crack at the Champion Hurdle after making turf history at Newcastle on Saturday.

The seven-year-old became the first horse to win the North East track’s two big races in their calendar, the Northumberland Plate on the Flat in 2010 and the Fighting Fifth Hurdle.

He defeated 2010 Champion Hurdle winner Binocular for his latest success and may just have one more race before going for the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham festival in which he was seventh in March.

“It was absolutely fantastic. When you think he can’t do it anymore, he goes and does it again. He’s a wonderful horse to have,” trainer Donald McCain said.

“He won’t be running for a while and we’ve got to decide what we do. I’d have thought we’d go back for the Champion Hurdle as he does seem to have improved again this time.

“What we do between now and then we will have to play it by ear. There will be a run somewhere before, I’d have thought, but it won’t be for a while.”

Overturn was second in the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton last season but, McCain ruled the Boxing Day event out of the equation.
