Trainer Evan Williams on Friday is looking to have a winner at Fakenham today over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Norfolk based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 484 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 24% during his career having had 108 winners from his 445 runners coming this far.

He fields Tossapenny in a Maiden Hurdle and this eight year old could just be a class above this field having finished a good third at Hereford back in February behind two next time out winners.

That sets the form standard and having won a P2P on good ground and over this trip, he looks tough to beat.
