Trainer Fergal O'Brien on Wednesday 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 762 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 24% during his career having had 24 winners from his 100 runners coming this far.

Cage Of Fear in the three mile Handicap Hurdle has already won over this course and distance at Perth over fences and having finished second back over hurdles at Wincanton last time out, he should be primed for this event.

Big chance at a nice price, with a handy 5lb claimer helping with the weight.
