SEABOROUGH trainer Harry Fry’s impressive form for 2017 continued as debutant Just A Sting scored another victory for the yard at Bangor-on-Dee.

The five-year-old got home with Fry’s assistant Mike Legg on board to seal bumper glee at 6-1 in the final race of the meeting, beating secondplaced Fin And Game by twoand- three-quarter lengths.

And Fry was delighted to see his sublime start to 2017 continue, with five winners in the opening three days of the calendar year.

He posted on his official website: “Hopefully we can keep the good run going over the next few days.

“Just A Sting was well ridden by our assistant trainer Mike Legg who stepped in for Noel Fehily who is suffering from flu.

“The horse has worked like a really nice prospect since he was sent to us by Nigel and Barbara Collison in October, who also own another decent youngster with us called Acting Lass.

“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.”

He added: “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.”
