Betting Tip: Percy Thrower @ 7/1 with bet365

The 1m2f trip of the nursery handicap at Nottingham this afternoon is a stiff test for a juvenile and the winner will need stamina in abundance.

Most of the runners have yet to encounter such an extreme distance, though a few promise to be suited by it and they include the Charlie Hills-trained PERCY THROWER, who is making his handicap debut after the requisite three runs in maidens.

He caught the eye on his debut over 7f at Salisbury in early August, when keeping on nicely after showing signs of greenness in the preliminaries and being slowly away. Stepped up to a mile on his next start at Kempton, he was again slow to break and having made headway into fourth 2f out, he then seemed to hit a flat spot before running on again into fourth. He finished well beaten on his most recent effort at Ffos Las, again over a mile, but at least that qualified him for nurseries off what looks a very fair mark of 69.

He’s a half-brother to Dubday, who won a Group 3 over 1m4f at Glorious Goodwood last season, and Dannyday, winner of the Northumberland Plate consolation race this summer, so he’s going to come into his own when upped to middle distances next term. But his stamina is going to come in very handy this afternoon and the fact Hills is giving him another run before putting him away for the winter, suggests he thinks he can win a race such as this.
