CHARLIE FELLOWES had his most successful season since taking out a licence six year’s ago when notching 34 wins and £490,650 in prize money last year and his arrival at his new base at Bedford House was truly cemented.
Ace in the pile once more was Prince Of Arran who won the Group 3 Geelong Cup in Australia in October but there was a notable success in the two-year-old division with King Carney landing his second career win when making all in the Listed Silver Tankard Stakes at Pontefract in October.
Charlie is well aware that his horses are long term projects but as his career continues to emerge is hopeful of further strikes in the juvenile division and appears to have some of the sort of horses this time around that could be making an impact earlier in their careers.
Charlie kindly spokes to Tony Elves of At The Races about those he hopes can be displaying their talents on the Racecourse in the coming months.
Please note: Where a horse exists in the ATR database we have linked to its form and tracker profile below, we will update others when they become available.
Bay Colt: Lawman – Finagle
"I bought him at Ascot Sales for 33,000gns and he was one of the top lots. His sister is a very decent filly trained by Ger Lyons called Nurse Barbara who won and was beaten a nose in a listed race at Leopardstown before finishing sixth in the Cheveley Park. That was her first foal and he is a good looking Lawman who has done a couple of pieces of work and will soon be ready to go. He is a very straightforward horse and looks like a nice enough type."
Chestnut Colt; Gleneagles – Vendetta
"He was a more immature type but has done well the last month. He will probably be an August type two-year-old and so far found everything nice and easy and caught the eye at home. He looks to be a nice type."
Bay Gelding; Zoffany – African Plains
"He is a Zoffany gelding from the family of Fair Eva and a very good looking horse. He is a nice strong well set type. He was gelded about a month ago as he was quite heavy. He goes nicely at home and I would say he would be an August type two-year-old. He looks sharp and I would think he would start over six furlongs. He was bought out of Tattersalls Book 3 and I would think he would the ideal type for that Book 3 Sales race at the end of the year."
Bay Colt: Kodiac – Golden Flower
"He is a small sharp sprinter type. He galloped last week and came alive – he had previously been a bit lazy in his home work but he relished going quicker and definitely seems more than capable of stepping up now. I would say that a couple of more pieces of work and he will be ready to go sooner rather than later."
Bay Filly; Brazen Beau – Her Honour
"She is a sharp filly who looks speedy. I have had a couple of quite quick fillies including Snazzy a couple of years ago and she finished third in the Marygate and this filly would be well up there. She has a bit of size about her too and she should be ready in relatively good time and I like her."
Bay Colt: New Bay – Lus Na Greine
"He is not named yet but despite being by New Bay out of a Pour Moi mare he is sharp and has a lot of speed. He looks more than capable of starting over six furlongs and has done a couple of bits of work and caught the eye. He was bought for 50,000 euros at Tattersalls Ireland and, again, he would be ready to go sooner rather than later."
Chestnut Colt; Night of Thunder – Methanora
"I bought him out of Tattersalls Book 1 for 85,000 gns and he is a lovely big scopey type. The stallion couldn’t have made a better start to his career and, although he hasn’t done any work yet, this fellow looks a really nice type. He would nearly be the pick of my two-year-olds at the moment. He would be one for July or August."
Bay FIlly; Gleneagles – Seolan
"She is unnamed and I train her full-sister Highland Dreamer. She has a bit of size and scope and a lot more quality than her sister. She would be one for August time and she looks like a nice filly and finds everything easy and has a nice way of going."
