Publisher's Summary

Jockey Kelly Hughes and trainer Dexter Cranfield had been barred from racing - a devastating event for them both. The charge at the secret enquiry? Throwing a race for personal profit.
It was a vicious frame-up and, worse, they had nowhere to turn to clear their names. Still Hughes refused to take the phony verdict lying down - even though his quest to clear his name might have him lying down permanently.

First past the post

Jockey Kelly Hughes finds himself banned from racing after a stewards' enquiry that seemed to have decided the outcome before it started. Unfair and unjust Kelly soon decides to make his own enquiries about it after being approached by the trainer's daughter to help her father out of his depression. The story is exciting and gives an insight into the racing community and its workings.

Well told, well narrated, but perhaps a bit formulaic, it kept me gripped until the end and was entertaining, educational and insightful. When you need a story that is not too violent or extremely bloody but is still a gripping yarn Dick Francis will be a good choice.

A case of mistaken identity.

As usual, Dick Francis has excelled. The plot and the characters are both excellent. However, the producers of this audiobook should give more attention to detail. The narrator was not Jeffrey Howard and full marks go to Tony Britain for another excellent performance.
