Trainer David Jeffreys on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Musselburgh today over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 676 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.

Jeffreys seven year old mare has been in and out of form during his career, but made the switch to this yard and made her debut last time out.

She finished fourth at Fakenham over three miles when last seen in December and that was her best run for a while and now dropping back in trip should suit.

Although on a losing run the mare showed clear improvement last time out and she should give another good account of herself if taking to the drop in trip.

Jeffreys love bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 25% for the season having had four winners from his 16 runners coming this far.

Another big stat that bodes well for this horses chance today is that the handler has had two winners from his last five runners which sees him some smashing form, running at a win rate of 40% for the last two weeks.
