On Friday, Hugo Palmer will be looking to have a winner north of the border in Scotland, sending just the one runner on the 722 mile round trip from his Kremlin Cottage Stables down in Newmarket up to Hamilton.

Whenever we see a yard travel a fair distance with one of their horses we like to highlight it, as we believe they would not be coming all that way if they did not believe they were in with a real chance.

The former Classic winning trainer has enjoyed plenty of previous success when travelling at least this far with his horses having had an astonishing 109 winners from 416 runners (26% strike rate), therefore the claims of Thunder Legend can only be enhanced with those factors taken into account.

This son of Night Of Thunder fetched 125,000gns earlier in the year so connections will be hopeful he retains a fair amount of ability and despite failing to notch a victory thus far he has shown good form in defeat, and this thrice-raced maiden looks to have been presented an ideal opportunity to open his account today.
