Trainer Evan Williams on Thursday is looking to have a winner over the jumps at Carlisle, sending just one runner to the Northern based track today, which sees the handler make a 570 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 shrewd Welsh handler has a big chance in this event if converting his hurdles form over to fences having not fully shown his best effort over the bigger obstacles yet.

The six year old switched back to hurdles last time out for a confidence booster and was a nice third, which should put him right for todays event.

Williams when travelling this far with his horses is currently running at a strike rate of 25% having has 38 winners from 152 runners.

He is also one of the top course trainers heading into the meeting having had five winners from 19 runners at the track this season.
