A trainer on Friday is looking to have a winner at Newcastle on the flat, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 490 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.

George Boughey loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 23% during his career having had 16 winners from 70 runners.

Colombe, previously with Henry Candy, made his stable debut over five furlongs at Wolves last month and finished a fair third of nine when being sent off as favourite.

Maybe just needing the run after a bit of time off she should be fully tuned up for today's event.
