4th Oct 2017 3rd 16/1 – Its A Sting – Oliver Sherwood Bangor

A nice return run from Oliver’s horse – looks one to follow after this. Original quote: “It’s A Sting didn’t fire when last seen in three runs over fences after being consistent over hurdles the previous season for us. He wasn’t with me last season so I’m not sure why he didn’t run but it wasn’t a tendon injury. Sting can be gassy and keen so I wanted to start him over this shorter trip today as he is likely to be fresh after such a long lay off. He is a lightly raced horse who is open to improvement. Sting hasn’t run for 587 days and whilst he has done plenty of work at home he does everything very easily so he is bound to improve for the race, he is usually a very good jumper.”
