Nicky Henderson has revealed that talented nine year old Captain Conan, a three-time Grade 1 winner, is in hospital, being treated for a fractured pelvis.

Henderson tweeted on Monday: “Captain Conan went straight to hospital from Ascot on Saturday and is still there with Simon Knapp who is in charge and is keeping Captain Conan stable.

“He has a fractured pelvis which has caused haemorrhaging but it’s going down a bit. It’s touch and go but we all love him dearly and everyone is keeping everything crossed that he recovers.”

Henderson added that another update on Captain Conan will be made later on Monday.
