Trainer Keith Dalgleish on Friday is looking to have a winner on the all weather at Lingfield, sending just one runner to the Surrey based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 838 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.

Aberama Gold has a leading chance at Lingfield on Friday and although needing to defy top weight to get back to winning ways, he is two from two on the all weather in handicaps.

Having been a smart horse on the turf Dalgleish has turned into a solid prospect on the all weather and although needing to better his latest run at Kempton, he drops back into a lesser race here.

This is one of the furthest trips we have seen all season for a trainer to just race one horse and it is worth taking notice of with the handler having a 12% strike rate with his travelling horses coming this far.
