NEWS: Telecaster digs deep to foil Too Darn Hot in Dante
on 16 May 2019
The son of New Approach won the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Dante Stakes

Too Darn Hot was upstaged by Telecaster in a surprise result for the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Dante Stakes at York.

Last season’s champion European two-year-old gave his all – but his Derby dreams were ended as Telecaster took the spoils in the hands of Oisin Murphy for trainer Hughie Morrison.

Too Darn Hot’s stablemate Turgenev set a strong pace and was shadowed by Telecaster, with the pair having the field well stretched out for a long way.

Frankie Dettori had Too Darn Hot settled nicely in fourth and he was produced at the right time to make his challenge, only to find Telecaster (7/1) refusing to buckle in the closing stages as he stuck to his guns to beat the even-money favourite by a length.

Surfman stayed on well for third place, and while Aidan O’Brien suffered a rare reverse in the Classic trials as Japan failed to get in a serious blow, he was not far behind in fourth.

Telecaster was slashed to 5/1 from 20/1 for the Investec Derby, but will have to be supplemented for the Epsom showpiece.

As for Too Darn Hot, his trainer John Gosden was quick to nominate the St James’s Palace Stakes over a mile at Royal Ascot as the target for his previously-unbeaten Dubawi colt.
