Trainer Grant Tuer 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 504 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 25% this season having had four winners from 16 runners.

Gunnerside is the 11/8 favourite for the contest having won over seven furlongs on his first run of the season at Newcastle and although running under a penalty he looks more than capable of winning off this mark.
