Trainer Dr Richard Newland on Tuesday is looking to have a winner at Hexham today over the jumps, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 448 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 30% during his career having had 62 winners from his 210 runners coming this far.

Lawtop Legend has been in good form of late having won last time out over hurdles at Plumpton and if taking to the larger obstacles over a course and distance he has won at then he looks a big player.
