Trainer Philip Hobbs on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Wetherby today over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 496 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.
No Comment for owner JP McManus having been chasing last term and not taking to the bigger obstacles, was moved back down to hurdles and has looked a much more competitive horse.
He needed the run on seasonal debut at Musselburgh, but bounced back to form last time out at Hereford when a narrow second and he is only 3lb higher for that run today.
Hobbs has a superb record when travelling this far with his horses having 94 winners from 356 runners during his career and that sees him pose a strike rate of 26%.
