Fellowes bids to go Wild
Charlie Fellowes is hoping Prince Of Arran can maintain his unbeaten course record in the Listed 32Red Wild Flower Stakes at Kempton Park tonight.

Star Storm(James Fanshawe) heads a quality field of 13 for the £40,000 contest over a mile and a half and was last seen going down by a half-length to Western Hymn in the Listed Floodlit Stakes at Kempton at the start of the month.
In contrast, this represents a step up in class for Prince Of Arran who is out to maintain his 100 per cent record at Kempton after bolting up by four lengths in a 12-furlong handicap on the same day. That was his third victory at the course following eye-catching wins in a maiden and an 11-furlong handicap on his comeback in April.
Trainer Charlie Fellowes said: "Prince Of Arran is in good form. It is a step up in class but he won a decent handicap as he liked last time and has an interesting profile on the All-Weather.
"He has had his complications mentally in the past but I think we are way past that now having gelded him. The operation seems to have really settled him down which is obviously a big plus.
"We have all got Star Storm to beat. He looked pretty unlucky when getting touched off by a decent horse last time.
"I have never made any secret of how highly I regard Prince Of Arran. I think he is definitely up to Listed standard and would be disappointed if he is not."
Curbyourenthusiasm(David Simcock) is another classy performer, having finished second in the Group Two Yorkshire Cup in May, and he drops in trip having returned to form with a smooth success in a 14-furlong handicap at Chelmsford City.
Chemical Charge starts his second spell with trainer Ralph Beckett. He was unbeaten in two starts for Beckett in 2014 before being sidelined and returned this year in the care of Irish trainer Ger Lyons. His three starts in Ireland included a close second to Sir Isaac Newton.
Bess Of Hardwick (Luca Cumani) and French raider Dogma (Stephane Wattel) clash again after finishing first and second in the Listed EBF Stallions River Eden Fillies' Stakes at Lingfield Park on October 27.
Other eye-catching contenders include Crimean Tatar (Hugo Palmer), who won his only start by seven lengths at Newmarket in July, Not So Sleepy (Hughie Morrison), a winner at this level at Chester last season, and dual course scorer Elysian Fields (Amanda Perret).
