Trainer Richard Hannon on Thursday is looking to have a winner on the all weather at Newcastle sending just one runner to the Northumberland based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 606 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.

Richard Hannon is a trainer if coming this far that normally brings a couple of his horses and only taking one over he must be confident.

In the Class 5 Handicap over a mile the handler fields Babajan and the top weight looks to be a big player if being being able to back up his win last time out over a mile at Kempton.

He has been hiked up 3lb for that win but looks to be in strong form with a good third before that over the same course and distance at Kempton.

With that, when travelling this far with his horses he has a 18% strike rate throughout his career, which leaves this gelding with plenty of things in his favour.
