Stan Moore Accepts Watership Down Stud Too Darn Hot Greenham Stakes will be a difficult task for The Wizard Of Eye but he still intends to lead his stable star at Newbury next week.

The Galileo Gold son prepared himself well last season and was a respectable fifth at the highest level at the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere in Longchamp in October.

He’s already run this season and finished seventh in the Saudi derby, but that came on the Riyadh clay course.

Paddy Power and Betfair make him 50-1 for the Qipco 2,000 Guineas, although 100-1 is common and Moore doesn’t look beyond the Greenham, who has a rich roll of honor when it comes to future stars.

“He’s in good shape and will probably run at Greenham, but it’s going to be extremely hot – everything seems to be going well there,” said the Lambourn trainer.

“Maybe he’ll go to Richard Hannon’s for a piece of work later in the week and it’s just to take him away. The Lambourn gallops are great, but that gets him out of the yard and onto the truck; it gets his energy going.”

2,000 guineas entries

Moore, a Group 1 winner with Abbaye heroes Total Gallery in 2009, added: “I thought he ran well in Saudi and wasn’t beaten that far. He got a bit tired but it was his first time in the dirt and a few other English horses were left behind so it was hard work.

“The Saudi form works well and the horse that was right behind us [Island Falcon] finished third in the UAE derby.

“The experience will have done him good – he’s grown up a bit. He’s still a bit babyish physically and mentally and we’ll see how he fares at Greenham before we think of the English, Irish or German Guineas. He’s a real horse and will definitely win a big one.”
