Charlie Fellowes

    With Endless Acres to the fore of the Cesarewitch market, Charlie Fellowes is hopeful for a grandstand finish to the turf flat season, but also has several who should keep filling the coffers during the winter on the all weather

CHARLIE FELLOWES has only been training for four seasons but the learning process has not been lost on him and his patient approach has seen his team come to fore recently after a slowish start.

Fellowes has notched 19 winners so far and there is every likelihood his personal best of last year can be bettered before the close of the year and he has the prospect of a possible big race triumph this weekend when Endless Acres takes his chance in the Betfred Cesarewitch Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday.

The Champs Elysees gelding finished runner-up to Thomas Hobson in the Ascot Stakes Handicap at Royal Ascot in June and Fellowes immediately pulled the plug on his campaign to have a fresh horse for the second leg of the Autumn double.

The Newmarket trainer has other stable stalwarts who could well force their heads in front in the coming weeks but it is the younger brigade on whom he is pinning his hopes.

Fellowes said: “This has been a difficult year as it has been a transitional year when our older horses were at the top of their mark and our two-year-olds last year weren’t much cop.

“We have managed to do well despite that and the horses have done us proud but what I am really excited about is this year's two-year-olds who are a nice bunch. We haven’t run that many but those that have run have run well and they are going to be even nicer next year.”

Accession (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of seven of his 48 starts and currently rated 100. Last win when beating War Glory two and a quarter lengths at Newmarket (7f) in July off a mark of 94.

Trainer Says:

He is an eight years old who's had a fantastic year and won again which was amazing. He loves Newmarket and ran ok the other day there but Martin Lane who ride him beautifully got it wrong and rode him a bit too hard. They went pretty quick and I think the horse of Roger Charlton’s Makzeem is pretty smart. He has gone off for a break and we will aim for races mainly at Newmarket again. Whilst he still seems to be thriving we will keep him racing.”

Buckland Beau

Form Profile:

Winner of four of his 37 starts and currently rated 71 on the turf and 76 (AW). Best effort this term when third, beaten a length, to Rockwood at Pontefract (1m) in April off a mark of 74.

Trainer Says:

He has had a frustrating year and should have won at Pontefract in April. He ran well without winning several times and ran over a mile at Chelmsford where he was drawn in the car park. I think we will look to go back over ten furlongs at some stage and I will carry on running him through the winter on the AW. Hopefully, he can start winning again as he’s a well handicapped horse and if he does he could well go and win two or three in a row.

Captain Navarre

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 17 starts and currently rated 76. Unplaced to Maori Bob on his debut for the stable at Leicester (1m 4f) in September off a mark of 79.

Trainer Says:

He is a similar horse to Ooty Hill in that he had a lot of time off the track before he ran for us at Leicester. My horses weren’t quite firing then but he still ran well having got outpaced, then stayed up the hill. I think his future lies over further than a mile and a half and ha shapes like a stayer through and through. There is a two mile race at York this weekend which we are planning on sending him too. I think a nice big flat galloping track will really suit him and we will go there and then see where we go. He has a good record on the AW so he might be one for staying races on the AW during the Winter.

Carolinae

Form Profile:

Winner of five of her 19 starts and rated 86 on the turf and 88 (AW). Winner at Lingfield and Wolverhampton in January and February and creditable effort at Newbury (6f) in July when runner-up, beaten two and three quarter lengths to Staintondale Lass off a mark of 86.

Trainer Says:

She had a great Winter and won three times and won £60,000 in prize money on the AW. We had a crack at the turf and she ran very well and we have given her a nice break since she went over to Ireland. She has just come back into the yard and is trotting and started cantering last week. I would hope she would be ready early December and we will probably be going a similar route to last year.

Chiefofchiefs

Form Profile:

Winner of three of his 11 starts and currently rated 87. Last win at York (1m) in July when beating Arcanada half a length off a mark of 86.

Trainer Says:

He has had a great year winning three times although he is one of horses that needs things to go his way. When he won at York we thought he was really going to progress and we had the Cambridgeshire in mind. Sadly, things went wrong after that and he got drawn very wide at Thirsk and Kempton then the Windsor race was a muddling race. He ended up running in the Silver Cambridgeshire which can often be more competitive as you have unexposed three-year-olds in it that can’t get into the big one. He ran a blinder there to finish fourth and that's him for the season. He has been gelded and that will make a huge difference and he will come back in January for the start of what should be a very exciting year.

Endless Acres (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 8 starts and currently rated 98. Runner-up, beaten six lengths, to Thomas Hobson in the Ascot Stakes Handicap at Ascot (2m 4f) in June off a mark of 96.

Trainer Says:

He has had a fantastic year and finished second last time out in the Ascot Stakes Handicap at Royal Ascot. That took quite a lot out of him so I took the decision to give him a bit of a break and turn him out which has done him the world of good. He had a month in a paddock and is back in and ready to go. He is one of the favourites for the Cesarewitch this weekend and I think the race will really suit him and the ease in the ground will be much better for him that the fast ground at Ascot. Two and a quarter miles on a big galloping track could be ideal. He is in good form and never finished outside the first four and is a credit to the yard. I can’t wait to run him in the Cesarewitch. I would say that would probably be it for the season and we look very much to him being a horse for next year.

Fire Tree (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of three of his 16 starts and currently rated 80. Last win when beating Brilliant Vanguard half a length off a mark of 77 at Ascot (1m) in July.

Trainer Says:

We bought him off David Wachman and he has had a great year. He won two for us nicely and he needs a bit of cut in the ground and a flat or uphill track. He won at Wetherby  and won at Ascot and we took him to Goodwood for the Festival and he hated the undulations. He then went to Sandown and ran better than his finishing position suggested and ran at Newmarket the other day and hated the track. He has carried a little niggle all year and I think he just had enough at Newmarket. He is turned out and is going to have a nice long break which he deserves. He will come back at the beginning of next year and we will start with a nice fresh horse. He is lovely big horse and I am not ruling out popping him over hurdles at some stage.

Mia Tesoro (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of four of her 14 starts and currently rated 79. Finished third, beaten half a length, to Breden at Newbury (1m 2f) in September off a mark of 78.

Trainer Says:

She got a nasty injury at the beginning of the year which just stopped her from returning to the track until the beginning of August. She has since run three times and ran very well at Newbury last time out over ten furlongs. The owner is a breeder and wants to have a crack at some black type so she will either head to Newmarket for the Pride Stakes on Friday or head out to Dundalk for a ten and a half furlong listed race on the all weather. She has got a lot to find but has a lovely attitude and both tracks will suit her.

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 5 starts and currently rated 94. Making his debut for the stable when fourth, beaten nine and three quarter lengths, to Torcello at Newmarket (1m 4f) in September off a mark of 95.

Trainer Says:

He is a really nice recruit to the yard and he was a decent horse for Roger Charlton and I don’t know what went wrong but he made his debut for us at Newmarket after 700 days off the track and ran a lovely race to finish fourth. He is a big horse and will come on a bundle for the race. There is a race at Doncaster at the end of the month that we might aim for which is over a mile and a half and we will see how we go but I think he will stay further.

  • View full form
Form Profile:

Winner of three of his 19 starts and currently rated 104. Best effort this term when runner-up, beaten a length and a half, to Sweet Selection in the Group 3 Sagaro Stakes at Ascot (2m) in May.

Trainer Says:

He ran a blinder when second in the Sagaro Stakes and then in the Gold Cup he ran a great race and it looked like he was going to trouble the front two but then just didn’t get home. Since then it has been frustrating and he ran poorly at Goodwood, York and Salisbury. All three times the ground was on the soft side and I am pretty sure that has been the problem. His best runs have been on the AW or on quick ground which is amazing as he is by Shirocco. He is going to have a break and will be brought in at the beginning of November then he will have a prep before heading out to Dubai in January. There is quite a nice staying programme on the turf and the quick ground will really suit him. Hopefully, we will pick up a race or two before heading for the Gold Cup on  World Cup night if he is good enough.

Repercussion (GB)

Form Profile:

Winner of two of his 11 starts and currently rated 98. Returned to winning form with a vengeance at Newmarket (1m) at the end of September when scoring by five lengths from Knight Owl off a mark of 88.

Trainer Says:

He has been very frustrating but he absolutely bolted up at Newmarket the other day. The handicapper has had his say and put him up to 98. He was very impressive at Newmarket and beat a good field easily and had a tongue tie on for the first time which must have made a difference. Hopefully, we can now build on that and move on from there. He is a funny customer and it has taken us time to work him out. He has plenty of speed and a mile is his trip and there is a listed race at Newmarket at the beginning of November that might come under consideration.

Three Year Olds

Crimson Rosette (IRE)

Form Profile:

No wins from 4 starts and currently rated 78. Best effort on reappearance at Newmarket (1m) in April when third, beaten three and a quarter lengths, to Dancing Breeze.

Trainer Says:

It has been a really frustrating year for her and she ran a blinder at Newmarket first time out in a mile Fillies Maiden. Natavia finished second and one of John Gosden’s won it and both are rated in the 100’s now. My filly then went to York and I thought she would win but it rained half an hour before and she ran well but came back with an injury. She is a couple of weeks away from a run and I thought she was Stakes class before she did her injury. She has a mark of 78 which should be a penalty kick for her. Plans A is to get a win into her and then after that we will see where we are going.

Hajaam (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of two of his six starts and currently rated 70. Improving with experience and off the mark with a three and three quarter length victory from Stoneboat Bill at Haydock (1m 2 1/2f) in September before following up with a six length success from Iballisticvin at Kempton (1m 4f) last week (unpenalised) off a mark of 62.

Trainer Says:

He is lovely big raw horse and you can see why the owners paid a lot of money for him as a yearling. He has taken a long time to come to hand and get himself together. He ran well on his first start in a handicap when finishing fourth at Kempton and has since bolted up at Haydock and then when not carrying a penalty at Kempton last Tuesday. He is progressing nicely and we will just let him catch himself again and we will get him going in the next three weeks. I think he is only going to improve and progress. I would like to think that he is still ahead of the handicapper and that there are more wins in him.

Trainer Says:

He has won twice this year and was a massive price when he won over a mile at Ascot in May. He then won at Yarmouth in August and is a lovely genuine horse who will get a mile and a quarter. He has just had a little problem with his feet so we have decided to give him a break. He will be a lovely horse for next year and there is more winning to be done with him.

Trainer Says:

She ran well at Nottingham second time out then ran disappointingly at Windsor but my horses were out of form and I don’t think she liked the track. She has had an easy time since then I did back off with her but she is now back in full exercise and will be ready to run at the end of the month. She is more than capable of winning races off her current mark.

Trainer Says:

He ran really well at Lingfield the other day in ground that was too soft. We bought him relatively cheaply out of Luca Cumani’s yard at the Horses-In-Training Sales and he has been bought by his owner to have fun on the AW during the winter. I think he is well handicapped and I think he will serve his purpose perfectly and we should have a lot of fun with him. – he has some winning to do.

She is probably a couple of weeks away from running and is owned by the Elite Racing Club. She is lovely little filly who will start over six furlongs and, hopefully, can get winning fairly soon. We will get a run or two into her before putting her away.  

BUCKLAND BOY

Trainer Says:

He is another nice big colt who is going to be ready to run in the next three weeks or so. He will start over seven furlongs or a mile and will want a bit of cut in the ground. A run would do him the world of good and he is one for next year.

He is another nice colt by Cape Cross. He would have been ready to run before now but just had a minor setback about a month ago. He will be ready to run in the next two or three weeks and will start off over a mile. He is another nice one for next year.

He has a couple of entries and is a half brother to our stable star Accession. He is similar to him and is small and tough and whether he has Accession’s ability we don’t know. He is ready to run in the next couple of weeks and we will try and find some soft ground on the turf for him.

Jeremiah

Form Profile:

Finished third, beaten three and three quarter lengths, to Deyaarna on his debut at Chelmsford (1m 2f) this month.

Trainer Says:

He ran a lovely race at Chelmsford last week and was very green in the early stages before staying on in eyecatching style at the finish. He is absolutely massive and nearly 17 hands but very strong and well made for a two-year-old of his size. He could be quite useful and is bred to stay all day and from the family of Samuel and Duncan. Ideally, I would like to give him one more run and win and then put him away.

Off the mark at the third attempt when scoring by a length and a half from Rotherhithe at Kempton (7f) last week.

I think she is smart and I would like to think she is stakes class. She bumped into a smart one of William Haggas’s at Lingfield on her second start on ground that would have been too soft for her. I don’t know what I am going to do with her but there is a listed race over a mile at Newmarket in November which would be a possibility.

She is owned by Philippa Cooper and she is a lovely big strong filly. She has been entered for Newmarket on Friday and I quite like her. Knowing, Mrs Cooper she will probably want to give her one run and then put her away for the Winter unless she goes very close and we do want to win as a two-year-old. She is a lovely size with a great attitude and she is going to make a nice three-year-old.
