Back Too Darn Hot to win St James Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot @ 9/4 Coral

While I was disappointed that I did not back Phoenix Of Spain in the Irish Guineas last month, I was delighted to see Jamie Spencer’s mount claim Classic glory at the Curragh. Spencer nailed his fractions as Charlie Hills’ powerful grey saw off plenty of talented rivals from the front but, while that was undoubtedly an outstanding performance, I still feel Phoenix Of Spain could be slightly vulnerable over a mile.

Too Darn Hot came through to finish closest to Phoenix Of Spain at the Curragh, passing the post a three-length second, and while many would consider that a disappointing result, I thought it was an encouraging effort - considering the circumstances. And for me there are plenty of reasons why Too Darn Hot could turn the tables on his Curragh conqueror on the opening day of Royal Ascot.

Injury forced last year’s top juvenile out of the Guineas and a half-baked plot to point Too Darn Hot at the Derby was foiled when John Gosden’s colt lost his unbeaten record when second to Telecaster in the Dante. Just 10 days after that gruelling effort over an unsatisfactorily lengthy trip, and taking his injury lay-off into account, you could have forgiven Too Darn Hot a tired display at the Curragh. Yet, Gosden’s top colt ran a hugely respectable race, finding Phoenix Of Spain a little too hardy on the front end.

Once Newmarket had been ruled out, I am sure that the St James’s Palace Stakes would have been at the forefront of Gosden’s mind for Too Darn Hot. The fact he’s been able to take in, and run very well in, two high-profile races beforehand can only be a boost to his chances and, at 9/2, Too Darn Hot could be the best bet on day one of the Royal meeting.
