Trainer Ben Clarke on Friday is looking to have a winner at Aintree today over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Liverpool based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 428 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 67% during his career having had four winners from his six runners coming this far.

The four year old has an uphill task according to the betting market, but having finished a good second in April in a point bumper behind If I Say, he holds good credentials and may be over priced.
