A trainer on Thursday is looking to have a winner over the jumps at Perth, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 896 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 David Pipe loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 38% during his career having had 26 winners from 68 runners.

Iron Heart chased home four time scoring Appreciate at Worcester last time out, 13 lengths clear of the third home.

He's turned out quickly here 8 days on and races 4lbs well-in on his future mark.
