A trainer on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Kempton on the flat, sending just one runner to the Surrey based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 492 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.

Trainer Mark Johnston loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 15% during his career having had 1727 winners from 11705 runners.

Vintage Fashion has been seen three times in novice company to date and now steps up for her handicap debut off a nice mark.

She drops in trip to 6f for this event and if overcoming a wide draw could be handy.
