A trainer on Friday is looking to have a winner at Newcastle on the flat, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 566 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 Charles Hills loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 20% during his career having had 62 winners from 307 runners.

River Tweed for the experienced handler was a good winner at Redcar last time out and looks really unexposed making his handicap debut this afternoon.
