covalent character increases as size of cation decreases so SbCl5 should be more covalent...

Sb5+ < Sb3+            (size)

Due to +5 oxidation state of sbcl5 whereas it is +3 in sbcl3 . As higher the positive oxidation of central atom, more will be the polarising power which in turns, increase the covalent character of bond formed between the central atom and the atom surrounding it.
