On Monday, trainer Mark Johnston is looking to have a winner at Kempton on the all-weather, sending three runners on the 246 mile journey, which sees the handler make a 492 mile round trip.
When we see trainers coming such a long way to just run their horses we like to highlight it, as we believe they would not be coming all that way if it did not have a real chance; and one of his runners is of particular interest.
The horse in question is My Dubawi, a son of, of course, Dubawi, who has failed to show too much in his opening four turf efforts.
My Dubawi is impressively bred out of Hong Kong and all-weather specialists so despite not delivering in his opening runs on turf, the switch to the artificial surface now looks sure to bring out plenty progression.
Oisin Murphy has a 33% strike rate when teaming up with Mark Johnston this season so it’s a clear sign of intentions from the trainer when he’s booked on board.
He’s been given a peach draw in stall 2 and looks set for a big performance with plenty early market support.
