A trainer on Thursday is looking to land a long distance winner, sending just a single runner on a 456 mile round trip over to Market Rasen to compete a listed affair at the track.

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 Christian Williams who boasts an impressive 23% strike rate with horses travelling at least this distance.

His runner, Win My Wings, finished last season in peak form, producing a careers best to easily land a mares handicap chase at Cheltenham by 10 lengths before subsequently winning over hurdles in France a month later.

She remains lightly raced over the larger obstacles, open to plenty improvements, and now appears well worth her chance at listed company.

The fact the yard travel so far and throw her straight in at this level, first time back after a break, signifies the great order she is in of late.
