A trainer on Monday is looking to have a winner at Fakenham over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Norfolk based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 442 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 Dai Burchill loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 33% during his career having had four winners from 12 runners.

Good Impression heads into the race at the bottom of the weights having not been seen over a fence since 2019 and hopefully his two experience over hurdles recently have set him up perfectly for this.
