With no bet in the first race of the day at Haydock, our first selection of the afternoon comes in the Juvenile Hurdle and one of the bets of the day is Gary Moore's Porticello.
This four year old French exploit was bought and given to Moore off the winning a Conditions Hurdle at Auteuil back in April 2021.
Making his British debut in October he got off the mark at the first time of asking, seeing off a field of Listed Juvenile's by close to four lengths.
He then went to Docnaster in the Grade Two Summit Juvenile Hurdle and had to settle for second behind the talented Knight Salute.
Looking to get back to winning ways last time out the youngster revelled in the deep ground at Chepstow in the Grade One Finale Juvenile Hurdle and took the race in Emphatic fashion.
Getting his ideal conditions and dropping back in class makes him extremely dangerous.
One to beat.
