A trainer on Tuesday is looking to have a winner at Sedgefield over the jumps, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 440 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.

The trainer in question is Charlie Longsdon who boasts an impressive 21% strike rate with horses travelling at least this distance; hes in good form of late with a 17% strike rate across the last 14 days with 60% of his runners running to form.

His runner Maxi Jazz has a current record of 0-10 over fences, however may have just found the perfect opportunity to get off the mark at Sedgefield.

The runner has kept on well in recent runs over the 3 mile trip, including a runner up finish on his penultimate start behind the subsequent hat-trick scoring Railway Muice (rated 111), a strong piece of form.

The manner in which he has finished his races has shown clear potential for a further step up in trip and he now takes on 3m 3f for the first time.

He's expected to now progress for the step up in distance and is more than competitively weighted off a mark of 75 for the contest, carrying a mere 10 stone 6lbs on his back.

Leading jockey Brian Hughes is an eye-catching booking in the saddle and can be taken as another sign of an expected big run.
