A trainer on Tuesday 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 566 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.

Trainers William Muir & Chris Grassick love bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 67% during their career having had four winners from six runners.

On Tuesday they field Shuv H'Penny King who looks to have a big chance now being 4lb lower than his last winning mark and also having a handy 3lb claimer on board puts him in the mix.
