Night Nurse's second victory in the Champion Hurdle is widely regarded as the highest-quality race ever run over timber. His Peter Easterby-trained stablemate Sea Pigeon, a future dual winner, was only fourth, with the great Monksfield beaten by two lengths into second. A last-flight mistake contributed to the runner-up's defeat, and the pair's rematch at Aintree shortly after in the Templegate Hurdle is still talked about now.
It was jump racing's most famous ever dead-heat with Paddy Broderick in the saddle.
