A trainer on Tuesday is looking to have a winner at Ayr, sending just a single runner on the long journey across the Irish Sea to Britain to be competitive.

When we see trainers coming such a long way, especially cross-country, 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.

The trainer in question is Karl Thornton who holds highly impressive form figures of 11211 upon British soil.

His representative, Shanroe Al C, added to that tally last time out over todays C&D, landing an eight runner affair at this level in good style.

The son of Arcadio has been raised 6lbs for that triumph, however exactly half of that load is offset today by the employment of 3lb claimer J C Barry in the saddle.

He holds solid claims for following up today and if dealing with the slightly softer ground, should put in another close effort.
