Too Darn Hot returns in top-quality field for Dante Stakes at York

Tue 14 May 2019

Too Darn Hot will face seven rivals when he makes his eagerly-awaited reappearance in what promises to be a high-class renewal of the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Dante Stakes at York.

John Gosden’s colt was the undoubted star of the juvenile division last season, winning each of his four starts, including the Dewhurst at Newmarket.

He spent the winter as red-hot favourite for the 2000 Guineas, but was ruled out of an intended trial run in the Greenham Stakes at Newbury and ultimately missed the first colts’ Classic of the season.

There is still a chance the Dubawi colt could bid for Classic glory, however, with Gosden hoping to discover in Thursday’s 10-furlong Group Two whether his speedy Dubawi colt could step up to a mile and a half in the Investec Derby at Epsom.

The Clarehaven handler also runs outsider Turgenev.

Aidan O’Brien has dominated the Derby trials so far this spring and sends Japan into battle in the latest of them.

The Galileo colt makes his first competitive start since touching off stablemate Mount Everest in the Beresford Stakes at Naas in September.

Godolphin hopes rest on the Charlie Appleby-trained Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf victor Line Of Duty.
