A trainer on Tuesday is looking to have a winner at Newcastle on the all weather, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 432 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 Ian Williams loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 15% during his career having had 60 winners from 389 runners.

The gelding holds the strongest form in the field having won a decent race at Wolves two starts back over 12f which has worked out well form wise and his latest nose second over the same trip at Lingfield also looks a nice piece of form.

Highly consistent animal that looks to not have reached his ceiling, running today off a mark of 49, which is only 1lb higher than last time out.
