A trainer on Wednesday is looking to have a winner on the all weather at Newcastle, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 432 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 Ian Williams loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 16% during his career on his own having had two winners from 18 runners.

Three wins from his last four events, finishing third last time out at Lingfield and runs off the same mark today in an easier event.
