A trainer on Saturday is looking to have a winner at Chelmsford on the all-weather, sending just one runner to the Essex based venue on the day, which sees the handler make a 466 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.

The trainer in question is Karl Burke who boasts a 25% strike rate at Chelmsford this season (2 - 8).

His runner Jusumi cost just 7,000 guineas as a yearling however saw his price shoot up to £26,000 when re-sold at the breeze ups.

The son of Dandy Man is winless thus far across 7 career starts, all over the 5f trip, however showed a real flash of potential when running on well to finish runner up last time out at Wolverhampton after being given the application of a first time hood.

The same hood is retained on the runner today and he now makes the first time step up to the 6f trip.

Should the increased trip bring out further improvements, we can expect him to go close once more here and make the trip worthwhile.
