I was there the day he won the Fingal Hurdle; the ground was really heavy, but he was still able to accelerate away.
The Scottish Champion Hurdle makes painful viewing; it looks like he was coming to win the race, tho Sea Pigeon was still close. I believe he was also giving the others 5 lbs, tho maybe I could be corrected on that.
In my view Night Nurse was the best performer over hurdles that I ever saw but I was a teenager back then. Golden Cygnet certainly looked a horse of immeasurable potential and , who knows, could have been the best ever.
