The regally-bred Too Darn Hot made a deep impression when winning on debut at Sandown on Thursday evening.
A son of Dubai out of Dar Re Mi, he was sent off the 8/11 favourite in the Slug And Lettuce 2-4-1 Tanqueray Thursdays EBF Maiden Stakes and showed a smart turn of foot to draw seven lengths clear of his rivals.
Frankie Dettori was in the saddle and said: "Any horse winning by seven lengths first time, you've got to take notice. He hit a couple of green spots but when I asked him to quicken on ground that is quite tiring, he put himself quite a long distance from the rest."
Trainer John Gosden was similarly impressed with Too Darn Hot, owned and bred by Lord Lloyd-Webber.
The Clarehaven handler told Racing UK: "He's a charming horse. There was a nice ease in the ground and he enjoyed it. He'll have learned a lot. He'll go for a novice next and then we'll see from there. He's a grand colt and hopefully he's got a good future."
