A trainer on Tuesday is looking to have a winner at Newcastle over the jumps, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 480 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 Samuel Drinkwater loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 20% during his career having had two winners from 20 runners.

The nine year old has been electric this term winning all three of his events over fences, going up 27lb to todays mark of 108 in the process and still looks to not have hit his ceiling.
