Trainer Ralph Beckett on Thursday is looking to have a winner at Ripon on the flat, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 480 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 27% for his career having had 84 winners from his 312 runners.

The four year old has been highly consistent placing in the majority of the handicap events he was pitched into last term and having had a comeback run to blow away the cobwebs he should be fit for this contest.

He is nicely weighted in the race and with handy 7lb claimer Laura Pearson taking even more weight off he could be right in the frame on ground conditions he loves.
