Having won in decisive fashion in the Group 3 Solario Stakes at Sandown at the start of this month, Too Darn Hot, a son of Dubawi, is likely to go off a red-hot favourite for the 7 furlong feature race, as trainer John Gosden aims for a sixth triumph the race, having first tasted success back in 2000.
Additionally, Dark Vision also brings an unbeaten record into the race, having triumphed in all 3 races which he's competed in. Victory in the Vintage Stakes at Goodwood, led to the Mark Johnson trained 2-year-old colt becoming a new recruit at Godolphin.
Having initially been targetted towards the Goffs Vincent O'Brien National Stakes this weekend, the recent purchase by Godolphin led to a change in strategy, and thus he's set to take his place in the field fo the Champagne Stakes.
A contest between the two is a thrilling prospect, and with the pair being prominent in the Guineas market, we're likely to learn a lot more following this weekend's action.
Frakie Dettori takes the reigns on Too Darn Hot, as well as his full sister Lah Ti Dar in the St Leger, later on in the card at Doncaster.
The popular Italian jockey told ITV Racing: "You've got the brother and sister running half an hour apart in two Group races.
"He's very exciting. It's nice that I'm able to ride him on a Flat track as that is the only time you get to feel a horse going through the gears.
"Sandown is a very steep track and more of a grinding, galloping track.
"I'm curious to see how he goes. It's a very select field that will test him, but I'm very excited.
In an interview with At The Races earlier in the week, Charlie Johnston, assistant to his father, Mark, discussed the reasons behind Dark Vision's change of target, since the acquisition by Godolphin.
"When we left Goodwood, our natural reaction was the next start would be in the National (Stakes).
"The horse was already a Group Two winner and that's the obvious progression, to go up to Group One level on his next start, but you have to take these factors into account.
"Sheikh Mohammed doesn't want these two horses running against each other and that's perfectly understandable.
"The horse did his final piece of work this (Monday) morning, he's never one to blow you away at home, he's a very laid-back individual, but he seems in good order.
"Giving away a penalty to Too Darn Hot will be difficult, we're well aware of that, but this horse is unbeaten and we still haven't got to the bottom of him."
