A trainer on Monday is looking to have a winner at Pontefract on the flat, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 408 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 Ralph Beckett love bringing their horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 23% during his career having had 212 winners from 913 runners.
