A trainer on Tuesday is looking to have a winner on the flat at Hamilton, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 408 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 Julie Camacho loves bringing her horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 24% during her career having had 48 winners from 204 runners.

Ballyconeely Bay shaped well when returning from 4 months off to run home for second over C&D last time out, his first run back from a wind-op.

He's entitled to come on plenty for the run, and appears well handicapped off a mark of 75 given his peak RPR's rate in the low 80's.
