1pt win Ch'tibello @5/1, 14:10 Haydock, Saturday

We backed CH’TIBELLO for his 8/1 Scottish Champion Hurdle success last month and I’ve no interest in abandoning him in this two-mile Haydock handicap hurdle.

His success at Ayr came after a winter break, so he might have been lacking in match fitness and I reckon he can improve for the run.

It was good to soft ground at Ayr and this is a horse who likes fast ground – hence the winter break – so with the going ‘good’, a 6lb rise in the weights might not be enough to thwart his progress and it’s hard to find any other reasons why he won’t run well again.

Paul Nicholls runs a Grade 1 winner in All Yours, whose best run was at Aintree last year, a similar flat track to Haydock, so he looks overpriced to go well again at 12/1 and is feared the most of the rest.
