A trainer on Tuesday is looking to have a winner over the jumps at Newton Abbot, sending just one runner to the Devon based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 498 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 Ed Dunlop loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 13% during his career having had 12 winners from 96 runners.
