On Saturday, one training partnership is looking to have a winner at Ripon, sending just one runner on the journey up North, which sees the handler make a 432 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.
Paul and Oliver Cole boast a highly impressive 27% strike rate with horses travelling at least this distance, and the pair are in decent form of late with a 27% win rate across the last 14 days.
Their horse in question is Zhang Fei, an eyecatcher last time out when repeatedly not given a clear run from 2f out.
Once the gap did appear for the runner however, he made slick, quick progress and flew home for 3rd.
The race marked a vast improvement on recent efforts for the runner and he appeared to appreciate the jump back to middle distances having ran over the mile in his 3 races prior.
He now takes a step up in grade and he appears extremely well weighted for his handicap off a miniscule weight of 8 stone 11lbs, given a further reduction by the welcome addition of 7lb claimer Mohammed Tabti.
