Darkness could make a return to the track in around a month’s time.

Darkness could make a return to the track in around a month’s time.

A smart but injury-hit chaser for Charles Egerton, the chestnut was last seen finishing 13th in the Grand National and had been a possibility to return in the Hennessy Gold Cup before having a setback.

Egerton said: “He tweaked a suspensory and I’ve got to get him back on the road.

“Hopefully he’s coming along but he is difficult to place off his rating.

“I suppose the race at Warwick in the middle of January (totesport.com Classic Chase) might be a possibility.”
