Delta could Work out in RSA
Trainer Gordon Elliott could be the man to follow in the RSA Insurance Novices' Chase at Cheltenham on Wednesday.
A total of 13 contenders remain with Elliott's Delta Work just edging favouritism over Santini (Nicky Henderson) with most bookmakers.
The Gigginstown House Stud-owned Delta Work has won all three of his chase starts and recorded a Grade 1 double in December with victories at Fairyhouse and Leopardstown.
"Delta Work is very well. He has plenty of experience over fences with three runs under his belt and two Grade 1 wins to his name," said Elliott.
"He didn't run at Leopardstown in February because the ground was quick, but we have had a smooth preparation with him and we are looking forward to running in the RSA Chase at Cheltenham next week.
"He won the Pertemps at Cheltenham last year which shows he likes the track and he has been very good over fences this year.
"He is a nice horse and doesn't do any more than he has to. He is quite an unassuming horse as you don't really know how good he is but he is in very good form at home and he will like the rain," added the Summerhill man.
