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 490 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 George Boughey loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 25% during his career having had 60 winners from 236 runners.

A winner of four of his last six races he is now 3lb lower than his latest run and that could allow him to get back to winning ways.
