Trainer Ian Williams on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Hamilton on the flat, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 600 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 13% during his career having had 14 winners from 112 runners.

Tanqeeb has slightly lost his way of late, but has now dropped to a very workable mark and having been a past winner on two occasions off similar marks, he can bounce back to his best.

Williams is a very shrewd trainer and if the horse can handle this trip he looks a live each way player at a price.
