On Friday afternoon, joint-trainers Paul & Oliver Cole will be looking to have a winner up at Newcastle sending just the one runner on a 568 mile round trip up to Gosforth Park.
Whenever we see any yard travel a fair way with one of their runners we like to highlight it, as we believe they would not be travelling all that distance if they did not believe they have a real chance of collecting some prize money along the way.
The yard have enjoyed plenty of success in the past when travelling at least this far with one of their horses having had four winners from twelve previous runners for an impressive 33% strike rate, which only adds to the compelling claims of this former winner.
Having struck twice in novice company, this lightly-raced colt returned to action with a fair fourth in Listed company when attempting this afternoons trip for the first time.
While he was unable to land a blow on that occasion, this represents a much more easier assignment and having been handed an opening mark of 85 he looks to hold every chance of figuring on handicap debut today provided he takes to the tapeta surface.
Fancied to have a say for a yard well amongst the winners.
