Trainer Michael Herrington on Thursday is looking to have a winner on the all weather at Chelmsford sending just one runner to the Essex based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 430 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.

Lady Alavesa in the one mile handicap has a huge chance if bouncing back to the same form two starts ago which saw her win her first race in two years.

The mare was below par last time out but only being 1lb higher than her mark when winning two starts ago makes her easy to take a chance on again.

When coming this far with his horses the handler runs at a 12% strike rate which has seen him land 24 winners from 202 runners.
