A trainer on Tuesday is looking to have a winner at Southwell over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Nottinghamshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 400 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 Philip Hobbs loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 23% during his career having had 172 winners from 764 runners.
