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 490 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 George Boughey loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 24% during his career having had 26 winners from 110 runners.

Purple Power made a pleasing start for the yard last time out when second over six furlongs at Newcastle and now getting an extra furlong could be even better.
