A trainer on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Doncaster over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 450 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 Philip Hobbs loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 22% during his career having had 148 winners from 664 runners.

Kalooki was a very good novice chaser last term and although needing his comeback run at Newbury looks to have a big chance.
