Set amid the drama of the turf, this acclaimed six-part series is based on the international best-selling novels written by former steeplechase jockey (and 1956 Grand National veteran) Dick Francis.

Mike Gwilym delivers a powerful performance as Sid Halley, a former champion jockey whose career ended when a racetrack fall left him with a shattered hand. He is jolted out of self-pity when his father-in-law urges him to investigate a string of mysterious 'accidents' at a major racecourse – one of which has killed Sid's friend. Drawing on his inside knowledge, Sid opens a private detective agency with reformed thug and judo expert Chico Barnes to dig deeper into a cut-throat world of blackmail, bet-fixing, falsified records – and murder.

Crackling with all the energy one expects from a rollicking Dick Francis thriller this series also features Mick Ford, Iain Cuthbertson, Susan Penhaligon, Gerald Flood, Carol Royle and James Maxwell – plus a very special guest appearance from the legendary Red Rum!
