IT'S three selections from Ditcheat today, a yard that is in top form and a that always does well at the Cheltenham Showcase Meeting.
October is 12.56pts down after yesterday's losers – well done all the winners.
Movewiththetimes is a lightly-raced horse who makes his chase debut here. He always looked a horse that would like the switch and he has been working well at home. He should have run in the Supreme at the Cheltenham Festival but was pulled out through injury so his last race was in the Betfair Hurdle where he came second beaten less than a length by Ballyandy. He is open to a lot of improvement now chasing and a big run is expected.
Black Corton has been out a few times for the summer jumps and really has been one to follow, winning four and second in the other. Every race he has just been getting better, Bryony Frost get the ride again after winning the last three times on him and it's good she gets the chance and connections are confident as conditions are right for him.
Dreamcatching is yet another from the Ditcheat yard, he has won three of his last four races and that defeat came in the Fred Winter at the Cheltenham Festival. He has a break to come back from but is going well at home and has more improvement in him.
