Too Darn Hot Handed Surprise Sprint Cup Entry

Too Darn Hot bounced back to form in the Prix Jean Prat last weekend, and the demonstration of his speed has prompted his connections to hand him a shock Sprint Cup entry at Haydock on September 7.

Should he venture to Merseyside for the Group One event, he would drop back to six furlongs for the first time in his career.

Last season's champion two-year-old has struggled for success this term, running with much credit but only managing to place in the Dante Stakes, the Irish 2,000 Guineas and the St James's Palace Stakes when more was expected.

All three outings before his win in France last week saw him compete over three different distances, and trainer John Gosden was the first to admit his mistakes regarding the horse's trip, as he returned as a winner back over his favourite seven furlongs.

The son of Dubawi was a surprise inclusion for the 32Red Sprint Cup, of which he was installed as the 2/1 favourite amongst 33 rivals.

Connections appear to be keeping all avenues open going forward.

(Credit: Racing Post) Simon Marsh, racing manager to Lord Lloyd-Webber (owner) said: "He showed an enormous amount of speed on Sunday and we want to keep all the doors open.

"It's exciting because he was his old self at Deauville and it was great to get him back on track for the season. We reverted to his strengths, running him over seven furlongs, and he recorded an extraordinarily fast time – he's obviously very quick.

"We got it wrong earlier in the year thinking we could stretch him to a mile and a quarter. The fact he has run consistently well at the top level despite that is testament to him."

The three-year-old - who also retains an entry in the Qatar Sussex Stakes over a mile at Glorious Goodwood on July 31, could be eyeing up a return at Deauville in the Prix Jacques Le Marois.

The Prix de la Foret over his beloved seven furlongs looks the big aim at the end of the season with perhaps a trip to the Breeders Cup Mile in America another venture.

If dropping back to six, he could face a series of top-notch sprinters including Commonwealth Cup scorer Advertise, Diamond Jubilee runner-up Dream Of Dreams and Wokingham winner Cape Byron - all three who will contest the tug of war in Saturday's Group One July Cup at Newmarket.

Ten Sovereigns - Group One winner over six furlongs as a juvenile will also state his claim of a comeback in that contest, whilst defending Sprint Cup champion The Tin Man could bid to become the first dual winner of the race since 1967.

James Fanshawe's flag bearer would however need to make a sparkling return to his best form.
