A trainer on Monday is looking to have a winner at Musselburgh over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 628 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 Olly Murphy loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 27% during his career having had 38 winners from 140 runners.

Mexican Boy looks to be the value in the race with Katie Farrell taking 5lb off and if building on his latest third he should be in the mix.
