Trainer Graeme McPherson on Monday is looking to have a winner at Ayr in the final race of the day sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 648 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 six year old Aviewtosea in the lucky last at Ayr and the gelding looks to have a solid chance from his two runs in bumpers this term.

Although running off top weight the gelding has plenty in his favour showing smart form from the outset of his rules career, not finishing outside the top two on both runs and has a handy 3lb claimer on board today that will take some weight off.

He made his debut in October at Chepstow over two miles finishing second behind a nice type for Paul Nicholls and since then has backed that run up by getting off the mark at Carlisle.

With that, when travelling this far with his horses he has a 33% strike rate throughout his career, having 12 winners from 36 runners which is a superb return.
