A trainer on Monday is looking to have a winner at Kelso over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 416 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 Donald McCain loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 20% during his career having had 402 winners from 1989 runners.

Masked Crusader is a leading player in this event today having hosed up Carlisle last time out and today could be tough to beat once more if being able to harbour a penalty.
