A trainer on Wednesday is looking to have a winner at Wetherby over the jumps, sending just one runner to the Yorkshire based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 526 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.

David Pipe loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 22% during his career having had 144 winners from 658 runners.

Siruh Du Lac has been an extremely smart chaser for the yard landing races like the Brown Advisory Plate at Cheltenham festival, whilst also picking up some nice races at Prestbury Park away from March.

Still being a novice over hurdles, Pipe has decided to send him back over the smaller obstacles and he looks to have a massive class edge over his rivals.
