A trainer on Thursday is looking to have a winner at Ayr over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 608 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 Samuel Drinkwater has not sent many of his horses this far in his career to date only sending four runners on trips like these.

Today he is looking to make it lucky number five with Buzz De Turcoing who looked a smart jumper of a fence when second on seasonal debut at Wetherby in October behind a nice type.

That looks the leading form and he should improve for that opening run.
