Trainer who is +£45 at Newcastle sends sole Thursday runner on 490-mile round trip 🚚

Newcastle Jumpers' Bumper

All-Weather fans can rejoice on Thursday, as another pair of Synthetic cards are on the docket. Newcastle and Chelmsford both host action, with jumps racing coming from Chepstow and Clonmel. We’ll have horse racing tips for all the action, including a NAP of the Day and Lucky 15 tips.

It’s always fascinating when a trainer sends a sole runner on a long journey to take up an engagement. That interest peaks when the trainer has a good record at the venue and those comments certainly apply to Michael Wigham and Newcastle.

He’s sent 65 runners to the venue in the last five years, with 13 reaching the winner’s enclosure. That equates to a strong profit margin of £45.00 to level stakes and sends a sole runner on the 490-mile trip to Newcastle on Thursday. You can find all the details and analysis below!

2.35 Newcastle – MansionBet Beaten By A Head Handicap

Just the five runners in this handicap contest and it’s an intriguing puzzle. Sanaadh is the representative from Wigham’s stable, a four-time All-Weather winner who has a very strong record at Newcastle. His form figures read 141616474, with all three of those wins coming over course and distance.

He currently sits four pounds below his last winning rating after a pair of below par efforts over course and distance the last twice. Those runs weren’t without promise, however, as he wasn’t suited by a pair of falsely run races. He needs pace to be getting involved and that scenario should be available to him here.

If that does prove to be the case, he’s well-handicapped and surely ready to pounce. Tony Hamilton will drop him in and will look to pick up the pieces late on with a power-packed finish aboard this nine-year-old.
