Too Darn Hot sizzles at Sandown for John Gosden and Frankie Dettori

Fri 10 Aug 2018

Too Darn Hot received quotes for next year’s 2000 Guineas and Derby after he caught the eye on his debut at Sandown on Thursday evening.

The young Dubawi colt, out of Dar Re Mi, pulled seven lengths clear in a one-mile maiden as the 8-11 favourite – much to the satisfaction of Frankie Dettori.

“Any horse winning by seven lengths first time, you’ve got to take notice,” said the jockey.

“He hit a couple of green spots but when I asked him to quicken on ground that is quite tiring, he put himself quite a long distance from the rest.”

Trainer John Gosden was similarly impressed with Too Darn Hot, owned and bred by Lord Lloyd-Webber.

The Clarehaven handler told Racing UK: “He’s a charming horse.

“There was a nice ease in the ground and he enjoyed it. He’ll have learned a lot.

“He’ll go for a novice next and then we’ll see from there.

“He’s a grand colt and hopefully he’s got a good future.”

Too Darn Hot, who holds an entry in the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster next month, is as low as 12-1 with Paddy Power about winning next season’s Guineas. He is available at 14s with the same firm for the Derby.
