IT'S the best of times for in-form Charlie Fellowes and ATAILOF TWO CITIES (4.12) is banker material in the two-mile handicap at Newcastle.
It looked more like the finish to a novice hurdle at Catterick last Tuesday as the filly drew clear to win by 22 lengths. Spycracker could be the one to follow her home.
ESSPEEGEE (5.15) chased home Bobba Tee last time and is bidding for a fourth course and distance success. George Ridsdale spanked Spantik by more than six lengths here in early September and is holding his form. Flower of Scotland, a well-named daughter of Gleneagles, ran creditably on handicap debut at Kempton for James Fanshawe.
KENSTONE (6.00), a five-time winner in 2016-17, is back down to a mark requiring full attention at Wolverhampton. The grey’s recent Bath third served notice that he could be ready to strike soon and Kenstone rates a juicy each-way punt. Rocket Dancer landed a touch at Newcastle three weeks ago and Mick Easterby’s gelding will surely be competitive.
