Too Darn Hot’s so hun­gry to win

The Racing Paper - - News -

TOO Darn Hot con­tin­ued his prepa­ra­tion for the Dar­ley De­whurst Stakes with a rou­tine gal­lop in New­mar­ket yes­ter­day morn­ing.

John Gos­den’s colt claimed his third vic­tory from as many starts with a scin­til­lat­ing dis­play in the Cham­pagne Stakes at Don­caster last month.

The son of Dubawi is a red-hot favourite to round off an un­beaten ju­ve­nile cam­paign on the Row­ley Mile on Satur­day week and ce­ment his place as an­tepost favourite for next year’s 2000 Guineas.

Ac­com­pa­nied by a galaxy of star sta­ble­mates in­clud­ing En­able, Cracks­man and Roaring Lion, Too Darn Hot com­pleted two rou­tine can­ters up War­ren Hill un­der his usual ex­er­cise rider, Maisie Hainey.

Fol­low­ing the work, Gos­den said: “I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to the De­whurst with Too Darn Hot – it’s the de­fin­i­tive twoyear-old race and will again de­cide who is crowned cham­pion two-year-old.

“He will do a lit­tle piece of work to­mor­row morn­ing, but not a huge work as he is a fit horse. It’s just a mat­ter of keep­ing him in the zone.

“Too Darn Hot’s favourite thing is eat­ing. Af­ter he gets back to the yard this morn­ing, if he does not get his feed pot within two min­utes he will start stamp­ing – he wants to eat!"
