Won last year by subsequent Derby winner Masar there are 15 entered this year with John Gosden, who has won it with Kingman and Ravens Pass, having the 5/4 favourite Too Darn Hot, with Royal Ascot winner Arthur Kitt next best at 4/1

However, Too Darn Hot (full brother to Lah Di Mar) won at a mile on his debut doing his best work at the finish and Gosden’s spokesman has said they may wait for a conditions race at Ascot next week. Another reason they may swerve it is that the stable has a very strong second entry in Beatboxer who won over C&D on debut before easing home at Haydock.

Presumably because the bookies have all assumed the hyped up TDH was going to run you can get 14/1 on Beatboxer with Slybet - if he runs and TDH doesn’t I’d expect him to be close to favourite.

Obviously it’s risky and money will be lost if he doesn’t run but given today’s comments I have had to take a punt on him.

unlucky with Beatboxer, the RP had switched Frankie from TDH on to Beatboxer so it did look as though Beatboxer was the entry

Too Darn Hot could win on the bridle, but i wouldn't be backing it significantly at 5/4.

Impressive LTO winning by 7L and could be anything, but the form is worthless in the context of a Group 3. It won a class 5 maiden stakes with only 5 runners, 3 of whom were unraced. One had been unplaced (5th of 6) and the other Fraser Island runner-up to Beat Boxer, stablemate of TDH.

The time was ordinary, specially compared to the other 8f race on the card.

May have to run to a mark of 110+ to win.

Although it’s a bit sooner than ideal I’d have to side with Watan (even with Moore on board Laugh ) - think he was beaten by a top notcher at York.

Watan ran deplorably, stuck out wide and had his mouth open all the way - couldn't believe Hannon said before the race the only reason they were bringing him out so soon after York was to try to get a group win for Toronado before the big yearling sales.Cry
