A trainer on Wednesday is looking to have a winner up in Scotland, sending just one runner on the day, which sees the handler make a 686 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.

The trainer in question is Fergal O'Brien, represented by Herewegohoney in the lucky last at Musselburgh.

The daughter of Sageburg is the most expensive purchase in this field with connections forking out £62,000 for the runner at the Cheltenham May sales on the back of an impressive 4 length point to point win in Ireland.

She's expected to have progressed further since joining a top yard and is taken to get off to a winning start under rules given she's a well fancied favourite for the contest.

Connections will be hoping they have found the perfect race for her to go and win given how far they travel to be competitive.
