NATHAN Turnbull made it a winning double to start Wednesday night's Bathurst Paceway meeting as he drove Just Won More to the narrowest of wins over Karloo Bradley.
Just Won More ($8.50), trained by Josh Turnbull, was lucky the race didn't end a few metres earlier as he brought down Barry Lew's Karloo Bradley ($5, Mat Rue) by a half head.
The disappointing performances of best-backed runners Ally Rogan ($2.20 favourite, Doug Hewitt) and Happychappyshannon ($3.50, Travis Bullock) paved the way for the race's next two top-supported horses to go head-to-head at the finish.
And they got to the finish line in completely opposite fashions.
Karloo Bradley got away strongly from gate five to take up the running ahead of several fast-starting runners to his inside.
Turnbull found some space from the back row to give Just Won More a place four back on the outside line.
He hit the 'go' button on Just Won More with 500m to run and began a three wide move, but was forced further out on the track when Doug Hewitt attempted to shift Ally Rogan out for the sprint home.
However, the favourite went into a gallop and cleared the way for Just Won More to save valuable ground.
Meanwhile out in front, Karloo Bradley had found a break over the rest of the pack but he had a charging challenger on the move.
Just Won More got the edge right on the finishing line to pick up career win number seven.
Tim McGee ($18, Anthony Frisby) was third.
