A trainer on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Hexham over the jumps, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 494 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 Jonjo O'Neill loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 16% during his career having had 20 winners from 128 runners.

Flames Of Passion is the horse in question today and the five year old mare has not looked the same horse that finished a tight second in a P2P back in March 2020.

O'Neill will be hoping the testing conditions will be more in her favour and she could put up a career best if taking to the track.
