A trainer on Friday is looking to have a winner at Newcastle on the all weather, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 490 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 Wigham loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 17% during his career having had 30 winners from 174 runners.

Today he fields last time out winner Storm Asset who has only been bumper up 3lb for his victory at Wolves over todays trip and he could have more to show.
