Tate assesses Law And Order
James Tate is leaning towards stepping Law And Order up in both class and trip for a shot at the Dubai 100 Autumn Stakes at Newmarket.

After meeting with defeat on his debut at Yarmouth the son of Lawman made amends when running out an impressive winner of a seven-furlong maiden at the July Course.
Following that victory the Newmarket handler has earmarked the mile Group Three prize on October 8 as a potential port of call for the two-year-old.
Tate said: "We've got a few options for him. There is not really any obvious Listed races for him.
"There is the Haynes, Hanson and Clark Stakes at Newbury which is a conditions race but at the moment the Autumn Stakes is the favourite option.
"The ground was quick enough for him at the July Course and he needs a mile. By the time of the Autumn Stakes we will have a better idea of the form hopefully."
While a step up to mile is next in line for the Saeed Manana-owned colt, Tate feels he should have no trouble in getting further next season.
He added: "On his breeding and the way he works I see him as a mile-and-a-quarter horse next year."
