Cheltenham Festival Thursday Tips: Delta Work the Pertemps punt

Delta Work looks on a handy mark and makes plenty of appeal at 12/1 in the Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle (2.10).

Gordon Elliott’s five-year-old came good at the second time of asking when landing a maiden hurdle at Punchestown back in May by 20 lengths.

He has since posted some really solid efforts, inclouding when a 12 3/4 length third to Samcro in a Grade 3 at Navan and when runner-up to Fabulous Saga in a Grade 2 at Limerick.

Delta Work also ran well when fourth of 16 to handicap blot Total Recall in a competitive affair at Leopardstown off a mark or 136, and caught the eye last time out in a qualifier for this when a 3 1/2 length third of 13 to Killfenora at Punchestown off 139 when sent off the 7/2 favourite.

He is able to race in this off the same rating and judged on the pick of his form in Graded events that looks exploitable.

With Davy Russell in the saddle he looks to have plenty going for him.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Delta Work (12/1 bet365 – BOG, 1/4 odds 1,2,3,4,5)
