Too Darn Hot to miss Greenham
on 10 April 2019
John Gosden's champion two-year-old will go straight to the 2000 Guineas following a setback in training

Too Darn Hot is set to miss his intended comeback in this weekend’s Watership Down Stud Greenham Stakes at Newbury.

Trainer John Gosden announced on Wednesday evening that the plan is instead to take last year’s champion juvenile and Qipco 2000 Guineas ante-post favourite straight to the Classic at Newmarket.

Having won all four of his starts last season, anticipation was building at seeing him back in action on Saturday – but that will now have to wait until May 4th.

Gosden told the Racing Post: “Too Darn Hot breezed comfortably this morning under Frankie Dettori on the Al Bahathri but tonight at evening stables he was found to have some heat in his splint bone. Unfortunately he’ll have to miss Newbury as he’ll have a few easy days. The plan is to take him straight to the Qipco 2000 Guineas.”
