TUESDAY 4.20 ST JAMES’S PALACE STAKES
1. Skardu 2. Too Darn Hot 3. Phoenix Of Spain Things did not go the way of Skardu in neither the 2,000 Guineas nor the Irish equivalent, as he was first home in the large centre bunch at Newmarket but only third overall, and from a tricky draw at the Curragh he was pushed along to adopt a handier pitch than usual and became lit up. The Craven winner should have a Group 1 in him granted better luck. Champion juvenile Too Darn Hot is entitled to build on his first two outings as a three-year-old.
