2:50 Ladbrokes Champion Chase (Grade 1) 3m

Delta Work: Five-time Grade 1-winning chaser failed to get off the mark in three starts last season but was close to his best when six-length third to Kemboy in Irish Gold Cup, having previously unseated early in the Savills Chase. Deserves respect but he tends to need his first run of the season and he has been well held in this race for the last two years running.
