Follow The Money: Carlito is one to oppose at Perth

Carlito Brigante is a Cheltenham winner but is to be opposed at Perth

Today's movers come from the meetings at Perth and Newmarket

"Gordon Elliot sends Carlito Brigante over from Ireland - which normally could be taken as a tip in itself - however, he ran no sort of race last time out at Kilbeggan in June which makes him impossible to back with any confidence today."

Lay Carlito Brigante @ 2.6413/8 Perth 15.20

Our first selection runs in Perth's 14.45 contest where Ifandbutwhynot has been a solid favourite and is now trading at 2.3411/8 from an early 3.185/40. This one makes his hurdles debut today after some good runs in bumpers last season. These included a runaway win at Newcastle before finishing a close up fourth in a Listed race at Ascot. In the context of today's contest that looks like decent form which suggests he may well be a different class to his rivals.

We stay at Perth for today's negative in their novice chase at 15.20 where Carlito Brigante has drifted out from 2.021/1 to 2.6413/8. Gordon Elliot sends this decent hurdler over from Ireland - which normally could be taken as a tip in itself - however, he ran no sort of race last time out at Kilbeggan in June which makes him impossible to back with any confidence today. He also faces a couple of decent hurdlers making their chase debut today so a lay looks the call.

Our final mover is at Newmarket where there has been some early support for Directorship in the 16:50 race from 16.5 in to 10.09/1. He broke a blood vessel when disappointing at Sandown last time out, but ran well in competitive handicaps before that. George Baker's mount has been given a break since his latest exertions and the early money suggests he is back to his best - and that would certainly bring him in to the reckoning this afternoon.
