A trainer on Thursday is looking to have a winner at Catterick over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 468 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 Oliver Sherwood loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 19% during his career having had 20 winners from 108 runners.

Guerlain De Vaux lools to be a very smart six year old that was smart on hurdles debut last time out over 2m4f, always doing his best best work at the finish which should see him enjoy the step up to three miles today.
