A trainer on Tuesday is looking to have a winner at Newbury on the flat, sending just one runner to the track on the day, which sees the handler make a 474 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 15% during his career having had 1386 winners from 9512 runners.

Night Moment seems to have been knocking on the door of late without winning and having shown clear stamina over this trip, he could cause an upset.
