A trainer on Thursday is looking to have a winner at Chelmsford on the flat, sending just one runner to the Essex based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 462 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 Mark & Charlie Johnston love bringing their horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 10% during their career having had 14 winners from 134 runners.

He was gelded before his return where he shaped like a horse lacking fitness and his previous form reads well.

Should build on his third.
