Trainer on Monday is looking to have a winner at Carlisle on the flat, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 580 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 24% during his career having had 16 winners from 58 runners.

La Pulga looks to have a huge chance in this event being a winner on debut at Sandown in June and then finished a good fourth next time out in a race that has turned out next time out winners.

The colts run last time out sets the form standard in the race finishing a good third in a warm Nursery Handicap and now back in novice company he should be tough to beat.
