Newsboy's racing tips: Delta Work taken to win Savills Chase


Take DELTA WORK to record back-to-back successes in a quality renewal of the Grade 1 Savills Chase (2.25) at Leopardstown.

Twelve months ago the seven-year-old came with a late charge to pip Monalee to the post, with the reopposing pair Presenting Percy and Kemboy not too far behind.

Delta Work went on to defeat those horses over track and trip in February, before finishing a fine fifth in the Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup.

In the same position on his reappearance, Gordon Eliiott’s charge is likely to come forward from that and he is top-rated in this classy field.

He can see off one of last season’s top novice chasers Minella Indo and his closely-matched rival Allaho.

Willie Mullins had a top level double at the track yesterday and he has several good chances this afternoon, with THE BIG GETAWAY the pick of them in the Ballymaloe Foods Beginners Chase (3.00).

At Newcastle, SWORD SPIRIT has an excellent chance of winning the Bombardier ‘March To Your Own Drum’ Handicap (4.35, NAP).

The three-year-old made his handicap debut look easy and should have enough in the locker to defy a 6lb penalty.

ANYTHINGFORLOVE put an unsatisfactory hurdling debut behind her last time out with victory at Lingfield.

The mare enjoys soft ground and is tipped to follow-up in the Sky Bet Price Boost Promise Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle (2.00, NB).
