A mixed day for trainer John Gosden at York. Lah Ti Dar won but made hard work of it. Stablemate Too Darn Hot was beaten by Telecaster, which displayed more stamina. Connections of the Telecaster appear to have made a mistake when withdrawing that winner from the Derby back in March. It would have cost £1000 to keep him entered for the race on June 1st. Now, should the owners want to put Telecaster back in for that race, it will cost them £85.000 to do so. Ouch!
Perhaps they will swerve Epsom and go for the Irish Derby . . .
