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 470 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 Herrington loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 9% during his career having had 16 winners from 170 runners.

Lady Alavesa was a course and distance winner at a similar meeting last year off an 11lb higher mark and now getting back to this track she can't be ruled out.
