Trainer Jonjo O'Neill on Thursday is looking to have a winner at Perth today over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Scottish based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 742 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 his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 22% this season having had eight winners from his 36 runners coming this far.

This seven year old has won two of his last five starts and although it did look as though the handicap might have his number, he looks to be on a fair mark in this event.

Present Chief was in smart form in the early months of the season and if getting back to that would be a big player.
