Trainer Tom Dascombe on Thursday is looking to have a winner at Musselburgh on the flat, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, 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 handler loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 16% for his career having had 125 winners from his 759 runners.

Capo Bay has been seen three times for the trainer and although being underwhelming in novice company, he looks to be on a very nice mark for his handicap debut.

He is related to six winners in his pedigree and is expected to be a completely different horse now in this sphere.
