Trainer Philip Hobbs on Wednesday is looking to have a winner over the jumps at Market Rasen, sending just one runner to the Lincolshire based track today, which sees the handler make a 478 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 reason why One For You has been bought to our attention is that the handler when travelling this far with his horses has a 25% strike rate with his runners.

Having only this horse today on his travels with him, Hobbs will be looking for this gelding to back up his victory at Ludlow last time out and if handling a 6lb rise has a big chance.

Hobbs also has a superb record at Market Rasen for the season, landing nine winners from 37 runners which sees him pose a 24% win rate.
