A trainer on Monday is looking to have a winner at Musselburgh over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 628 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 Olly Murphy loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 26% during his career having had 38 winners from 144 runners.

Today he fields Eaglehill owned by JP McManus and this eight year old has been highly consistent since switching to fences winning three out of his five events and was last seen at Fakenham in October winning nicely.

He is 2lb higher for his run today, but having not been seen for a few months he should be fresher than most in this field.
