On Friday, one trainer will be sending just a single runner on a 245 mile trip up North to Newcastle in a bid to land a long distance winner.

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.

The trainer in question is Mrs Ilka Gansera-Leveque, a Newmarket based operator who has a fair 10% strike rate across her small stable of just 12 runners this season.

Her runner, Rabat, has proven to be a largely consistent type, without quite getting her head in front, running in class 4 and class 5 graded affairs.

She now makes the significant switch back to novices and drops in grade to a class 6, presumably to make things as easy as possible to finally get this horses first win.

The daughter of Mehmas boasts the clear leading RPR's recorded by any other rival in this affair , whilst her 32,000gns price tag as a yearling is a fair figure, signifying potential to be well above this level.

Connections look to have found a race, albeit a long distance away, to finally rack up that all important first win.
