Darlan

Age: 6

Trainer: Nicky Henderson

Notable Race Wins:-

Top Novices' Hurdle: 2012

Nicky Henderson's Darlan had a topsy-turvy 2011/2012 season as he tasted Grade Two success at Aintree's Grand National meeting, but was also subject to some unlucky defeats and none more so in the 2012 Supreme Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

However, he showed mountains of promise and it first came to the fore when he was travelling eyecatchingly well in the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury, before suffering a crashing fall in the home straight and was unable to show his true ability.

Second to Cinders And Ashes in the Supreme, AP McCoy was yet again travelling serenely on the son of Milan, but Jason Maguire managed to get first run on him up the inside on Donald McCain's raider and it was difficult for McCoy to cajole his JP McManus-owned charge into contention over the last flight.

It was a different story on Merseyside as his three-and-three-quarter length victory over the smart Captain Conan showed he was a real exciting novice and would be an even more exciting hurdler in the 2012/2013 season and come March he could well be a leading contender for the 2013 Champion Hurdle.

In a wide open division, his trademark cruising speed is sure to stand him in good stead for the blue riband event on the opening day and if Henderson can improve him in the races leading up to the Champion then he could be very tough to beat.

Form For 2012/2013 Season

  • 26/12/12 - Christmas Hurdle - 14:35 Kempton (1st of 7 - SP 3/1) - Darlan propelled to the head of the Champion Hurdle market as he stormed to a mightily-impressive victory in the Christmas Hurdle, where he beat the classy trio of Countrywide Flame, Cinders And Ashes and Raya Star.  Travelling smoothly, AP McCoy produced him down the home straight and he quickened up in sensational fashion to pul over four lengths clear at the end.
  • 04/02/13 - 32Red Hurdle - 15:00 Doncaster (Fell - SP Evens Fav) - A hush was heard at Doncaster as Darlan, who was taking along in the Listed 32Red Hurdle, suffered a fall at the last flight, which turned out to be a fatal one.  Cruising up to Rock On Ruby, AP McCoy was motionless on the classy performer, but he fell horribly and was sadly lost by connections in a sad day for racing.
