Trainer Mark Johnston on Tuesday is looking to have a winner at Lingfield on the all weather, sending just one runner to the Surrey based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 542 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 15% during his career having had 1335 winners from 8958 runners.

Bowman is a lovely price for this event if bouncing back to form having been running poorly of late of 6f and today he steps up to 7f for the first time in his career.

Silvestre De Sousa rides and if going from the front he is a jockey that is tough to pass especially on the all-weather.
