Trainer Kayley Woollacott on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Doncaster today over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 468 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 female handler fields Stratton Oakmont in the lucky last at Doncaster which sees a bumper over two miles and this gelding gets the surprise mount of Harry Cobden.

The five year old has been seen twice in his career, finishing third on debut at Stratford in December behind Hooper who has since franked the form, but last time out the gelding was a worse fourth in a poor race and will need to bounce back from that today.

When travelling this far with her horses she has a 50% strike rate managing two winners from four runners and with Cobden also having a 31% strike at the track, the 28/1 for this gelding looks big.
