A trainer on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Kempton on the all weather, sending just one runner to the Surrey based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 444 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.

Trainers Michael & David Easterby loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 25% during his career having had two winners from six runners.

Ring Of Gold two starts ago was a bright second at Chelmsford in a Class 6 and then last time out went to Wolverhampton over seven furlongs and got off the mark.

Off 5lb higher today the gelding should go close again.
