A trainer on Wednesday is looking to have a winner on the flat at Catterick, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 401 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 Sir Mark Prescott loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 24% during his career having had 132 winners from 553 runners.

Got off the mark at the 16th attempt last time out and this handler is known for progressing horses in handicaps.

Sir Mark Prescott also has a superb record when turning his horses out within seven days running at a 32% strike rate.
