Denman Credit: Newbury Racecourse

Legendary racehorse Denman will return to the parade ring for his first public appearance on a racecourse since his retirement, at Newbury next week.

Visitors will get an exclusive opportunity to get up close to the famous racehorse, hailed as one of the "giants of jump racing" next Sunday.

New handler Charlotte Alexander said the horse is now a "true gentlemen".

“He was quite wild to begin with, rearing and fly-leaping and charging off, but each time I took him out he got calmer and calmer. Now he is very settled," she said.
