Here are our leading Cheltenham tips for each of the seven races on day two of the Festival.
Birchdale to Win and Each Way @ 14/1 – BET NOW
Nicky Henderson has an incredibly strong hand in this contest but it might be that the betting has underestimated the unbeaten Birchdale. He looked to be coming to claim the 140-rated favourite Brewin'upastorm on Trials Day in January when that rival crashed out at the final flight.
The JP McManus-owned son of Jeremy should have learned plenty from that win, though it might have been nice to see his reserves more adequately tested up the Cheltenham hill. He's got scope for plenty of improvement and can go better than his Cheltenham odds suggest.

Delta Work to Win and Each Way @ 15/8 – BET NOW
Winner of the Pertemps Final at this Festival last year, Delta Work is a rock-solid favourite in the RSA. He has impressed this term since going over fences and is the only horse to have mastered Le Richebourg, who would have been red-hot to win the Arkle bar his setback.
Delta Work looked very strong when winning his Leopardstown Grade 1 over this trip at Christmas and he can prove the Irish novice chasers are a step up on their British counterparts by landing this pot for Gordon Elliott.

Brio Conti to Win and Each Way @ 12/1 – BET NOW
Paul Nicholls could scarcely be coming to this meeting in better shape. The Ditcheat handler has been banging in winners and, arguably, has never been thriving like this ahead of Cheltenham since his Golden era of a decade and more ago.
Brio Conti ran out a nice winner at Ascot last month over 2m5f under Bryony Frost, despite lumping weight to the runner up, with the front pair clear. That was enough to get him in here and he had subsequent Imperial Cup winner Malaya back in fourth. He should run a big race again.
Altior to Win and Each Way @ 2/5 – BET NOW
Sit back and enjoy the best horse in training over jumps as Altior goes about his business. He's a three-time Festival winner and nothing fazes this superstar. He looked in trouble last year for about two strides out in the country, but he powered home for a seven-length win. Nothing he has done this season suggests there are any chinks in his armour. His old rival Min again looks the one for the forecast.
Tiger Roll to Win and Each Odds @ 11/10 – BET NOW
Another Festival win beckons for this remarkable little horse. He will go down in the record books having won the Triumph Hurdle, the four-miler and the Cross Country already, while he added the Aintree National last season.
Just to laugh at the formbook, he went and won a Grade 2 over hurdles in Ireland as his prep for his, with his trainer suggesting he was about '75 per-cent fit' for that race.
Our Power to Win and Each Way @ 20/1 – BET NOW
Alan King's record with juvenile hurdlers is stellar and he has a decent chance with Our Power. He had won two from three over hurdles before having his bubble burst here on Trials Day in January behind Fakir D'oudairies in a Triumph Trial. That put the graded prizes out of his reach, but he did enough in fourth to suggest he might still have a say in the Cheltenham betting.
Envoi Allen to Win and Each Way @ 4/1 – BET NOW
Three of the previous Champion Bumper winners have gone off at single-figure odds, while five of the last seven have been trained in Ireland. Envoi Allen completes our racing tips for day two at Cheltenham as he looks to carry the iconic colours of Cheveley Park Stud to a rare Prestbury Park success. He's won three from three so far and looks a strong contender.
