A trainer on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Kempton on the all weather, sending just one runner to the Surrey based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 536 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 Rebecca Menzies does not bring many of her horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 8% during her career having had two winners from 26 runners.

In the final event of the evening at Kempton she fields last time out winner Metal Man who has to harbour a 5lb penalty today but with the yard being in such scintillating form, he can't be ruled out again.
