Trainer John Gosden makes the decision to choose the 2,000 Guineas favorite Too Darn Hot after the weekend

  • Decision on the participation of Too Darn Hot can be made early next week
  • The undefeated stallion foal missed the Greenham Stakes last Saturday with a leg issue
  • Winner Dewhurst Stakes Too Darn Hot is 6-4 for the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket

Trainer John Gosden will decide whether favorite Too Darn Hot can run in the Qipco 2000 Guineas after this weekend.

The undefeated foal, owned by composer Lord Lloyd-Webber, missed the Greenham Stakes in Newbury last Saturday with a leg problem and his Classic run is in balance.

Gosden said: & # 39; There was heat in the splint that prevented us from running. It was only six days ago, but it has improved a lot. You have to make decisions at the weekend. It is not one of these things where you and I come to the race.

Too Darn Hot won each of its four starts, including a brilliant win in the Dewhurst Stakes

& # 39; After the weekend I will know if I have a clean run or not and make a decision. & # 39;

Winner Dewhurst Stakes Too Darn Hot is 6-4 for the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket on May 5.

A link from Guineas possibles, led by Royal Marine of Saeed Bin Suroor, will be in the Craven Stakes on Newmarket on Wednesday.
