Trainer James Fanshawe on Monday is looking to have a winner at Redcar on the flat, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 414 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 his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 19% for his career having had 54 winners from his 280 runners.

The four year old is making only the fifth appearance of his career having shown plenty of ability on the turf last term when winning his opening two events.

He made his seasonal reappearance at Newcastle in January in a tough Conditions stakes against proven winners and now dropped in grade for this event, having a run under his belt makes him a big player.
