A trainer on Thursday is looking to have a winner at Newcastle on the all weather, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 566 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 Charlie Hills loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 19% during his career having had 56 winners from 293 runners.
The horse he brings today is the talented Cephalus who comes here seeking a four timer having landed events at Chelmsford and Southwell in December and then over C&D next time out.
Up 3lb for his latest win he runs off a mark of 73 but still looks to be a better horse than that mark and should go close.
