Trainer Michael Dods on Tuesday is looking to have a winner at Yarmouth on the flat, sending just one runner to the Norfolk based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 456 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 15% for his career having had 24 winners from his 164 runners.

The three year old heads here seeking a hat-trick having scored at Newcastle over 6f in December and then backing that up at Southwell in January.

He has been given a break before his turf debut and if improving for the surface looks a big player.
