Cheltenham Ladies Day tips: Wizard Of Odds' betting preview for the Champion Chase and all the races on day 2

Dan Skelton’s rising star looks a cracking price to hit the frame at least after his exciting win in a Warwick Grade 2 last time out.

He travelled strongly and was quick over his hurdles, which is a must for this madcap contest.

There was plenty left in the locker passing the line over today’s trip and that proven stamina will be a major asset up the hill.

He’s taking on some quality competition with Champ setting a good standard after taking the Challow Hurdle at Newbury last time.

The winner of that race has a shocking record in this which puts you off.

The bigger challenge may come from Battleoverdoyen who was impressive over a furlong shorter at Naas latest. He did make a late mistake though that could be costly around here.

Brewin’upastorm is one of Richard Johnson’s best chances all week. He was beaten by Champ but was going like the winner here last time before falling at the last. If he learns from that he could be a threat.

DELTA WORK looks hard to beat in the RSA Chase (2.10).

He could hardly have been more impressive when landing his second Grade 1 success on the bounce at Leopardstown last time out.

That was just his third run over fences and he has already more than matched his excellent hurdles form that peaked with a win in the Pertemps Final here 12 months ago.

He’s a proven stayer who looks to have a lot more to offer. Topofthegame is the pick of the home challenge after a good second at Kempton on Boxing Day.

He was just collared near the line there on just his second chase run and he has plenty to build on for in-form Paul Nicholls.

JOSIES ORDERS can be relied on to run another big race in the Cross-Country Chase (4.10).

He’s won four times from seven runs over this unique track and comes here in good heart after a bloodless win at Punchestown last time out.

He handles any ground and took this race in 2016 with another solid effort in it 12 months ago.

Tiger Roll is just too short a price to retain the title. That’s because he ran away with a Grade 2 hurdle at Navan last time on just his second start since winning the Grand National.

We know he likes the track and is well-in at the weights with most of today’s rivals. Things can go wrong over this course though so offers of around 5-4 look skinny.

Auvergnat was fourth in this last year and ran just about the best race of his career when winning at Leopardstown. He’s had a little break since then and should be right on the premises again.

FANFAN DU SEUIL catches the eye in a wide open Fred Winter Hurdle at 4.50.

Tom George’s star has bounced back from an early season tumble in good style on his past two runs. He won a minor contest easily at Exeter begfore stepping up on that to finish a close second here last time out.

He showed his inexperience in the closing stages there and has a lot more to offer. Joseph O’Brien is proving a dab hand with young hurdlers and his Band Of Outlaws will have plenty of supporters.

He won in a big field at Limerick and confirmed that promise when taking a Naas event without coming out of first gear. The handicapper hasn’t gone mad after that good effort and he can take another step forward.
