Trainer Adrian Keatley on Thursday is looking to have a winner at Hamilton on the flat, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 408 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 14% this season having had 10 winners from 72 runners.
Socks Off won a bumper over 2m therefore his runs over 1m on the flat were always going to be a prep for handicaps when moving up in distance.
He has been handed a rating of 46 and connections have applied cheekpieces as he steps up to 1m5f, the gelding looks an interesting runner.
