Cheltenham Festival - Day 2

Winners yesterday at 6/1 and 14/1 on my ENIGMA Forum thread, so it was frustrating to pick the wrong one to put up on this blog. Aiming to try and fix that today.

It's going to be very tacky and stamina testing out there and I think DELTA WORK is the one they have to beat in the RSA Chase. He's a thorough stayer and a grinder and conditions looks right up his street. He also comes up strongly on my race trends and is Timeform top-rated too.

Elsewhere, Nicky Henderson's WILLIAM HENRY has a similar profile to the stable's Beware The Bare who bagged the Ultima yesterday after a wind op, following an excellent run in the same race (in similar conditions) 12 months before.

William Henry goes particularly well at Cheltenham and is on the same mark as last year, albeit he's lost James Bowen's 3lb claim.

However, Nico is on board this time suggesting William Henry is going well at home and I can't help noticing he's been kept fresh, having won no fewer than 3 times previously coming off a break.

Surely well worth a poke at a huge price.

2.10 Cheltenham, Delta Work 2pt Win 11/4
2.50 Cheltenham, William Henry 0.75pt EW 33/1, 5x1/5

** BOOM! Into orbit with William Henry a 33/1 winner - the Milky Bars are on me! Meanwhile, Delta Work good effort, but beaten fair and square **
