Trainer Heather Main on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Newcastle on the all weather, sending just one runner to the Northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 556 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 her horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 21% so far having in her career having had 26 winners from 124 runners.
Captain Haddock is having his first start for the yard today, having ran four times in his career for Harry Dunlop and only showing glimpses of ability.
The gelding drops in trip for this event which could be the making of him and he does look to have a race in him.
