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 556 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 Harry Whittington loves bringing her horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 22% during his career having had 22 winners from 102 runners.

Seddon has been a smart horse for the yard this term winning three starts back at Lingfield but the three miles looked to have stretched him last time out and back at this trip makes him interesting.
