Verdict

A watch the market race with IL FORNO setting the standard for Tatawor and Sunrise Lyric to aim at. A rating of 70 appears to be a little heavy for what he has achieved in his career so far but those form lines have obtained against much stronger opposition and with a notable lack of opposition on paper, Il Forno has earnt himself one more drink in the last chance saloon. Tatawor has been beaten in plating company. He can ill afford the slow starts that have accompanied his recent displays. Sunrise Lyric carries the colours of handler, Paul Cole. The second racecourse appearance was better than the first although we are surprised that the drop in trip has been considered. Posy Fossil was well beaten on her nursery debut. Dreamacha is a half-sister to Squadron so the breeding suggests that she will find this trip to be substantially on the sharp side. A modest contest where Il Forno is put up with the minimum of confidence.
