Delta Work Odds: Cheltenham Cross Country Chase Winner Moves to 2nd Favourite

The Grand National is a race that always attracts punters from far and wide. It is one of the biggest races of the year, and boy is it fun to watch! At the same time, it’s also a great race to bet on, with a flurry of bonuses and some enticing odds for many of the top horses. This brings me to the Delta Work odds for the upcoming Grand National:

Grand National Delta Work Odds

  • Ladbrokes – 9/1
  • Betfred – 9/1
  • William Hill – 9/1

As you can see above, the price for this horse puts him as one of the key favourites to take the win today. In fact, the 9/1 price puts Delta Work as the official 2nd favourite alongside Corach Rambler when looking at the ante-post markets. There is just a single horse above him for the moment, and that horse is Ain’t That A Shame, who has risen to a price of 8/1. 

So clearly, Delta Work is a horse that many punters will be backing going into the 2023 Grand National. However, what makes the Delta Work odds so high, and why is he heading into this race as one of the main contenders? Let me give you a quick rundown.

9/1 Delta Work Odds Explained – Deservedly the 2nd Favourite

Delta Work is one of the strongest long-distance runners in the lineup this year. His jockey will be Keith Donoghue – a highly experienced jockey who captained the ship in the recent win at Cheltenham. Speaking of which, this brings me to the two justifications behind the current Delta Work odds. Please see them here:

3rd Place Finish in the 2022 Grand National

Since Delta Work is a horse that has competed in the Grand National before, there is no better indicator of his chances of securing a victory than his previous performance here. Cast your mind back to the 2022 event, Delta Work managed to finish 3rd. And to be perfectly honest, losing out to Noble Yeats that day was a bit of a freak result, in my opinion. Therefore, since he’s achieved a 3rd place finish in the past, he could certainly do better this time around.

Double Cheltenham Cross Country Chase Champion

Because the Grand National is a long-distance race, it’s handy to look at races of a similar distance that a horse has competed in. On that note, Delta Work has not only competed in many long-distance events but he’s won several of them. Most impressively, he has secured back-to-back wins in the Cross Country Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. These wins came in 2022 and 2023.

Bottom Line on the Delta Work Odds – A Serious Contender for the Win

The current Delta Work odds of 9/1 show exactly why people love the Grand National. Even one of the heavy favourites is pushing double figures in the odds department, showing massive value if these horses can pull through. As for Delta Work’s shot at victory today, this is actually the horse that I am shooting for, mainly due to his current form and his strong run in the Grand National last year.
