Just the start
Just A Sting extended our smart start to 2017 with an impressive winning debut in the bumper at Bangor-on-Dee on Tuesday.
That makes it five winners so far in the New Year and hopefully we can keep the good run going over the next few days.
But you never know for sure until they get to the racecourse and Just A Sting was initially green at Bangor as the field set off at a brisk gallop.
It took a while for the penny to drop but he gradually warmed to his task before breezing past the leader Celebre D'Allen and quickly pulling clear for a decisive victory.
It was a highly encouraging start by a lovely big horse with much potential. We will not be rushing him this season and will keep him to bumpers for the time being.
