A trainer on Monday is looking to have a winner on the flat at Catterick, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 404 mile round trip.

When we see trainers coming such a long way to just run the one horse we like to highlight it, as we believe they would not be coming all that way if it did not have a real chance.

Trainer Michael Bell loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 16% during their career having had 84 winners from 523 runners.

Moved from Donnacha O'Brien's yard in Ireland over the Michael Bell to be trained over both hurdles and the flat, she makes her debut over timber in this event and looks interesting.
