Race Tip

DELTA WORK has thrived going down the cross country route, denying former stablemate Tiger Roll a fairytale finish in a thrilling contest at the Festival before taking third in the Grand National. Gordon Elliott's five-time Grade 1 winner returned with a success over the banks at Punchestown and despite the fact he gives 19lb and upwards to his rivals, is expected to be a cut above the opposition. Back On The Lash won over C&D at the November meeting last year and returns following a fine third over conventional fences here. Diesel D'Allier and Plan Of Attack, first and third 12 months ago, are both capable of decent showings too.
