Trainer Peter Bowen on Thursday is looking to have a winner at Huntingdon today over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Cambridgeshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 482 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 19% during his career having had 195 winners from his 1052 runners coming this far.

Rooster Cogburn was well backed at Market Rasen last time out when scoring in taking fashion an although up in the handicap, he takes on similar conditions here and may be good enough to defy the penalty.
