A trainer on Thursday is looking to have a winner on the flat at Newmarket, sending just one runner to the flat racing HQ track on the day, which sees the handler make a 432 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 Dods loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 16% during his career having had 40 winners from 252 runners.

Azure Blue will be looking to reverse the form with the favourite Khanjar and at nearly three times the price looks the value.
