Trainer Peter Bowen on Monday is looking to have a winner at Plumpton today over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Sussex based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 530 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 fields Get An Oscar into the Handicap Hurdle today and the mare having been pulled up over fences last time out is looking for a confidence booster over the lesser obstacles.
Having ran most of her career over hurdles, she did not take to chasing on her debut at Ffos Las last time out and after some lesser runs over the smaller obstacles aswell, her mark is now very workable and could put up a big run at a nice price.
When travelling this far with his horses, Peter Bowen has a 21% strike rate managing 116 winners from 556 runners throughout his career.
