A trainer on Monday is looking to have a winner at Thirsk on the flat, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 444 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 Ed Walker loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 14% during his career having had 42 winners from 299 runners.
