The gelding provided Darley with the success last November that took him past Edward Hide's record of 137 winners in a year by a Northern-based rider, and Second Colours' reappearance in the Annesley Stakes coincided with the jockey's return to the domestic fray.
Darley, who flew home on Wednesday from a fortnight's working-holiday in Singapore which produced three winners, is now aiming at improving upon the 142 winners he achieved last season.
'It will be very difficult having a better season than last year, but that is what I am setting out to do,' Darley said.
