Ornate is bound to be a warm order being a 110-rated horse who was runner-up in the Group 2 Flying Childers last time out, but he may not find this the total pushover the market predicts up against the rapidly-improving QUATRIEME AMI (best price 4/1)
. Charlie McBride’s inmate arrives his right on top of his game courtesy of a couple of smooth victories, the latter of which was achieved from a potentially crippling draw over the C&D 22 days ago. Dropped out the back in the early stages by Danny Tudhope, the son of Equiano was set a huge task in the home straight, but finding a tremendous turn of foot in the dying strides, he ended up actually winning with a bit to spare. Looking at the final sectional times of that performance, it reveals that this smart two-year-old ran the last two furlongs in a remarkable 22.6 off the back of strong fractions and knowing that he potentially has that sort of speed in his locker is enough to put the wind up any punter considering taking 1/3 about the short-priced Haggas runner.
