One runner today at Sandown.

 

Sting must be one of the unluckiest horses in training after two falls in his last two runs, he's one of the best jumpers you will ever see.

His first fence fall at Huntingdon happened when an extravagant jump caused him to clip heels with a horse in front of him when landing, then he was just moving into contention at Ludlow when a loose horse blinded him and caused him to unseat Leighton.

Poor Sting was a bit shell shocked and stiff afterwards so we decided to give him a spin back over hurdles.

 

I'm amazed that Sting is still a maiden over hurdles and fences, he had good form over the smaller obstacles in his first season for us.

He works really nicely at home and has always been an exuberant jumper.

 

Sting is o lovely horse to do anything with, he's a big gentle giant.

 

He will be ridden by Leighton Aspell.

 

It's A Sting is looked after by Hannah Benson he will be led up by Emily Wall and he is ridden at home by Andy Llewellyn.
