On Sunday, trainer David Dennis is looking to have a winner at Kelso over the jumps, sending just one runner on the 290 mile journey, which sees the handler make a 580 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.

Flying Verse was an impressive chase winner in August at Bangor, beating Hervana Hermano in a class 3 handicap before subsequently making a lesser suited switch back to hurdles last time out on unsuited fast ground.

That run appears forgivable and now back in his optimum discipline of chasing, he can once again pick up where he left off in this sphere, back upon better conditions and dropped in grade into a class 4 handicap.

Champion jockey Brian Hughes is retained on board, another big plus to his chances today.
