A trainer on Thursday is looking to have a winner at Doncaster over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 486 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 Nigel Hawke loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 18% during his career having had 106 winners from 594 runners.

He fields the 100/1 shot Hobsons Bay who is having his first run over hurdles having been poor on the flat but now running over a distance that should suit he has a big chance to outrun his odds.
