A trainer on Wednesday is looking to have a winner over the jumps at Wetherby, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 426 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 Richard Bandey loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 30% during his career having had six winners from 20 runners.

Southern Sam has been seen to good effect on all three of his chase starts to date and now returning for his seasonal debut off a mark of 119, he looks interesting.
