The consistent Sofi's Spirit has been making hay in plating races with four victories this month. She should take care of Harrogate Fair and Divine Angel but the remaining trio could prove a bigger problem. Bobby Two Shoes won a maiden over today's trip at Kempton as did FOXTROT JUBILEE. However, the latter recorded a faster time and with a subsequent winner back in third, that looks the stronger form. Ralph Beckett's charge gets the nod ahead of stablemate and Newmarket winner Fortinbrass, who hasn't raced since June.
