Trainer David Menuisier on Tuesday is looking to have a winner at Newcastle on the all weather, sending just one runner to the Northern based track for the first time since 2017, and it also sees the handler make a 670 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.

Menuisier has not bought a runner this far north for four years, which is surprising as his record when running horses at Newcastle over the years see him pose a 38% strike rate having six winners from 16 runners.

The four year old gelding Selsey Sizzler has been dropped into a weak race having placed in two of his last three races.

He was last seen finishing third behind the superb Main Fact for David Pipe at Catterick back in October and now having his first run of the season he looks interesting.
