Trainer Kim Bailey on Tuesday is looking to have a winner over the jumps at Newcastle, sending just one runner to the Northumberland based track today, which sees the handler make a 514 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 leading trainer sends just the one up North today and Donnie Brasco at 11/1 represents some value, with the yard in superb form of late having three winners from 15 runners over the last two weeks.

This gelding is lightly raced for his age and is only this price having been pulled up last time out for reportedly losing his action.

If bouncing back to his best he is not without an each way chance and Bailey when travelling this far with his horses is currently running at a strike rate of 26%.
