Champion Hurdle winner Constitution Hill and stablemate Shishkin were last night stranded in the north of England after their intended targets at Newcastle were abandoned.

The limit on a horsebox driver’s hours meant there was not enough time to get them back to Nicky Henderson’s Lambourn stable.

The loss of the Fighting Fifth Hurdle, now set to be staged at Sandown next Saturday, means Constitution Hill looks likely to make his seasonal debut in the Christmas Hurdle on Boxing Day.

Similarly, the loss of Newcastle’s Rehearsal Chase is likely to see Shishkin make his seasonal debut in the King George VI Chase.

Henderson said: ‘Newcastle did give us a bit of warning before the inspection so we stopped but they still can’t get back to Lambourn within the hours the drivers are allowed to drive.
