Trainer William Haggas on Friday is looking to have a winner at Catterick on the flat, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 402 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 handler loves bringing her horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 35% during his career having had 244 winners from 698 runners.

Sans Pretention has been seen three times to date showing promise on her sole juvenile start, but since then has failed to really kick on this year.

She steps back up to 1m4f today and her trainer is hoping the quicker ground will bring more improvement out of the daughter of Galileo.
