Trainer Mark Johnston on Monday is looking to have a winner on the all weather at Chelmsford, sending just one runner to the Essex based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 462 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.

Mark Johnston takes Glen Again over to Chelmsford in the 1m2f Class 5 Maiden Stakes and this three year old has looked a smart recruit from his two runs to date.

He made his debut over 10 furlongs on New Year's Eve at Newcastle and finished a good second, from there he backed that up over a mile at the same track with another smart second, this time behind a potential star.

Glen Again is a horse on the upgrade that has a perfect opportunity to get off the mark at the third time of asking today, if running to form/

Johnston has a superb record when travelling this far with his horses, running at a 15% strike rate for his career having 1215 winners from 8274 travelling horses.
