A trainer on Monday is looking to have a winner at Ayr over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 602 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 Olly Murphy loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 26% during his career having had 54 winners from 208 runners.

This six year old has been a frustrating type for the inform yard, promising so much and highly thought of but never really showing his true potential.

The team are hoping the step up to fences will bring the best out of him and coming this far with him, it reads well.
