Darling Maltaix made his debut in September 2017 at Newton Abbot Racecourse in a national hunt flat race to finish fifth. Ridden by Bryony Frost, he reportedly ran too freely but gained invaluable experience and was quick to adapt to valuable hurdles later in the year.

Fast forward to 21st December 2018, and the Thames Materials Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle over 2m51/2f where, with Lorcan Williams on board, he steadily drew clear and won with ease.

Of Darling Maltaix’s first win, Harry Derham wrote:

“Ascot provided us with two great days and on the first of those days it was Lorcan Williams who provided us with a massive highlight when giving Darling Maltaix what I thought was the best ride of his career to win really nicely. Lorcan rides this horse everyday at home and he is anything but easy but he does a super job with him, curbing his over-the-top enthusiasm and channelling it towards his job. Make no mistake, Darling Maltaix boasts a good deal of ability and, stepping up in trip, he displayed that perfectly.”

In his 19 runs, Darling Maltaix has placed eight times and come first twice.

When asked about his ambitions for Darling Maltaix, Paul Nicholls said:

He wants better ground and we’ll try and win some novice chases during the summer and see where we end up. There’s no particular target – simply to win races with him. He’s a good fun horse and we’ll win plenty of races with him at the right level.
