Trainer Rebecca Curtis on Wednesday is looking to have a winner over the jumps at Plumpton sending just one runner to the East Sussex track on the day, which sees the handler make a 522 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.

Rebecca Curtis is a trainer that goes under the radar in the jumps sphere, but is highly talented and today she sends just one runner to Plumpton, who looks to have a big chance for many reasons.

The 14/1 chance is a big each way player at the worst having scored two starts ago when given first time blinkers and backed that up last time out when placing at Wetherby.

The gelding will have to post a career best to keep the good run of form going and is helped by a handy 7lb claimer in the weights to do so.

Curtis has a superb record throughout her career travelling this far with her horses having two winners from 6 runners, which sees her pose a strike rate of 33%.
