Just A Sting doubled his score for the season with a spirited success in the Weatherbys Hamilton Novice Handicap Chase at Exeter on Wednesday.
 
Raised 6lbs for his welcome victory at Uttoxeter almost a month ago he deserved a crack at a decent pot and duly collected the first prize of £16,245 following a sustained duel with Gunfleet in the closing stages.
 
After jumping soundly the whole way Just A Sting briefly looked like winning with a bit to spare as he edged ahead going to the final fence.
 
But he idled in front which allowed Gunfleet to deliver a strong challenge on the flat.
 
It was nip and tuck with the pair bumping half-way up the run in before Just A Sting stayed on to prevail by a head.
 
We then had to endure a stewards’ inquiry though Noel Fehily was confident of keeping the race once he saw the head on film.
 
We will see how the horse comes out of the race before making a plan but he is progressing nicely and seemed suited by the step up to three miles on good ground that is ideal for him
