A trainer on Thursday is looking to have a winner upon the all-weather, sending just one runner to Wolverhampton on the day, which sees the handler make a 612 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.

The trainer in question is the in-form Lucinda Russell and her representative Ballyare who we flagged up as an interesting traveller when winning over C&D last time out.

The son of Hot Streak ran on impressively in that affair to make a strong challenge inside the final furlong, winning the race inside the final 100 yards, hitting an RPR of 85, and recording a careers best performance.

He runs off an untouched mark of 75 here under a penalty and looks to remain well-in with the handicapper if able to replicate that sort of performance now upped in grade just eight days on from his win.
