Trainer Mark Walford on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Kempton on the flat, sending just one runner to the Surrey based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 444 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 17% this season having had four winners from his 24 runners.

The five year old Risaalaat loves coming to this track being a course and distance winner over seven furlongs just two starts ago.

She was bumped up 6lb for that win and also stepped up to mile last time out to finish a fair third, but dropping back to her optimal trip this evening off the same mark as her third, makes her an interesting runner at a nice each way price.
