Freebet.com - 28-07-2019 - Too Darn Hot Primed for Sussex Stakes

Too Darn Hot Primed for Sussex Stakes

Too Darn Hot Primed for Sussex Stakes - Too Darn Hot Favourite for Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood
Too Darn Hot Favourite for Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood

Too Darn Hot failed to register a victory in any of his first three starts during the 2019 Flat horse racing season, with the three-year-old coming short at York, The Curragh and Royal Ascot before finally scoring at Deauville recently.


The horse is owned by Andrew Lloyd-Webber, with the John Gosden-trained charge finishing second behind Telecaster in the Dubai Dante Stakes at York before getting touched off by Phoenix of Spain in the Irish 2,000 Guineas.


Gosden would later claim that his horse needed a couple of runs in him as part of a strengthening exercise to benefit runs at Royal Ascot and beyond, although Too Darn Hot went to the regal meeting and was unable to register a victory in the St James’s Palace Stakes.


On 18 June 2019, Too Darn Hot lined up as the 2/1 favourite to win the one mile encounter on good ground, although Circus Maximus was the 10/1 winner on that occasion, while King of Comedy was also home as the 4/1 second before the market leader passed the post.


However, it was fourth time lucky this season in the Qatar Prix Jean Prat when Too Darn Hot scored an impressive win in France, with the three-year-old landing the spoils in this Group 1 contest and he obliged at odds of 4/5.


Frankie Dettori is having a brilliant year in the saddle and the horse is likely to be a warm order with punters when he lines up in the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood next year, with the Italian looking to land his latest success.


Bookmaker William Hill have odds of 5/4 about Too Darn Hot and, while the horse has regularly faltered at short prices this term, there’s a feeling that we might see plenty more from this talented charge.


While many media outlets have focused on the horse competing against his elders at Glorious Goodwood, the odds suggest that the runner’s main competitors will be fellow three-year-olds.


King Of Comedy and Phoenix Of Spain have previously edged out Too Darn Hot in the past and will be looking for another big showing, while Lord Glitters represents the old guard most strongly and could prove to be tough.


Gosden said: "It's been well publicised the mea culpa that we've had with Too Darn Hot but I think he showed in France what he's good at as he's a very quick horse.


"Before that we stupidly tried to stretch him out off a severely interrupted preparation which meant him missing the 2,000 Guineas.


"I think we've got him in the right place now and I was most impressed with how he hit the line strong over seven in the Jean Prat. His best trip is probably seven, seven and a half or an easy mile which is why we're going to the Sussex."


This was fairly bullish talk from Gosden considering that he was more reticent when talking about stable star Enable, although we might also see Too Darn Hot make a later appearance at Haydock as the horse is currently entered in the Haydock Sprint Cup.


The horse’s trainer is clearly concerned about the draw that his charge might receive considering that it often counts for so much when it comes to Glorious Goodwood.


Gosden said: "I'll be watching the draw with nervous eyes as we don't want to be drawn out in 12 at Goodwood as you've no chance from there but I think the two-turn mile will suit him as would a similar layout in the States where he could end up in the Breeders' Cup Mile [at Santa Anita]."


Lord Glitters won the highly competitive Queen Anne Stakes which was the first race at the 2019 Royal Ascot meeting and trainer David O’Meara feels as though the Goodwood track might not be completely to his liking.


He said: "He's had a good few weeks since the Queen Anne and will go to the Sussex Stakes.


"Ascot probably suits him a bit better than Goodwood, but he ran well in the race last year when he was a shade unlucky to be third beaten two lengths. He'll be going up against the three-year-olds, the likes of Too Darn Hot and King Of Comedy, but he's been running at a high level for a long time and we'd be hopeful he can go there with another good chance."
