A trainer on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Market Rasen over the jumps, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 518 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 Peter Bowen loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 19% during his career having had 186 winners from 961 runners.

Pilgrims King was a fair bumper horse on his final two runs on the level but on all three of his starts over hurdles he has shown average ability.

Now handicapping off an extremely lowly mark of 86, he could be in his element and stepping up 2 1/2 furlongs in trip could bring improvement.
