The Charlie Hills-trained Percy Thrower an agonising 5th at Kempton

Percy Thrower

Agonising was the feeling last night at Kempton as Percy Thrower just failed to make all in the 2m contest under Callum Shepherd. The Charlie Hills-trained 3yo lost little in defeat in his best run to date. From the widest of draws the plan was to try and grab the rail and stay there....It so nearly worked and Percy led from the start. However in the last 50 or so yards the others came closer and he went down just 3/4's of a length to finish 5th! Surely one of the most exciting 2m races for a while and although disappointing not to have won he showed he can do it from the front and battled hard to the line. Fingers crossed next time he can hang in there...
