Trainer Ben Haslam on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Kempton on the all weather, sending just one runner to the Surrey based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 492 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 the season having had eight winners from his 30 runners coming this far.

Holy Chalice is a big each way player today at a decent price and with Ben Curtis in the saddle she is sure to get a positive ride.

The filly has been hit and miss recently, being tried at six and seven furlongs, but going back to a mile at Kempton where she gave her best run to date makes her interesting.
