Down the years On this day in . . .1993.

Double time at Ascot for Nigel Twiston-Davies and Carl Llewellyn as they win the two big races, with Sweet Duke taking the Long Walk Hurdle by two lengths from Burgoyne, ridden by Peter Niven, and Young Hustler convincingly too good for Latent Talent, ridden by Mark Richards for Simon Sherwood, in the Betterware Cup.

Though Sweet Duke and Young Hustler managed only one more success between them in 1993-94, there was plenty still to come. Young Hustler's big-race successes included the Charlie Hall and Becher Chases, while Sweet Duke took the Reynoldstown during an excellent novice-chase season in 1994-95, though he died during an operation the following summer.
