A trainer on Thursday is looking to have a winner at Market Rasen over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Lincoln based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 402 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 Iain Jardine loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 14% during his career having had 117 winners from 824 runners.

Pearl Warrior looks a lovely prospect for the yard having been a fair horse on the flat and since stepping over hurdles of late has shown enough ability to go close today.

In October he made his debut at Sedgefield and finished a fair fourth learning a lot and last time out he was a much closer third over today's course and distance.
