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 510 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 Michael Scudamore loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 25% during his career having had 48 winners from 190 runners.

Court Master two starts ago was a good second at Newbury behind a nice type for Paul Nicholls and then last time out was a long way third at Cheltenham in a good Grade Three Handicap Chase over 3m2f.

Back slightly in trip today should suit and he is not ruled out.
