15:50 Beverley – Ornate (BEST ODDS 5/2 with Bet Victor)
Ornate is back down to his last winning mark after a disappointing performance last time out. I’m more than willing to forgive him for that and I still think he’s the classiest horse in this field by some way. There’s officially no step down in class being made here, but I feel that the average quality of horse is less than in that last race. Alpha Delphini will challenge Ornate for favouritism, but I would certainly be happier backing the latter as Alpha Delphini hasn’t won for over a year. It’s only been a month since Ornate was two lengths off the winner in a Listed race. I certainly don’t think that he should be written off yet and I’m expecting a big performance from him.
