Verdict

DELTA WORK made a fine start at Cork recently for the Gigginstown team and it will be no surprise should he get the job done now granted normal improvement. His chief rival looks to be French import Herminio, representing the champion trainer and jockey combination. It is more than 700 days since he last raced, but his master-handler is unlikely to leave any cobwebs on and he should be watched carefully in the betting. Unwanted and Chesterfield Queen are amongst those that might run into places at much bigger prices.
