When jockey Lee Finney is killed in a fall at Haydock, Alan Morrell knows it should have been him. For Lee had stepped in to ride Olympia when Alan injured his wrist.

When a fellow jockey is killed in a fall at Lambourn, Alan knows it should have been him. For he would have ridden Olympia in the steeple-chase that day - if he'd been able to make the weight. It's soon clear that something sinister has happened. An ex-policemen friend of Alan suspects that, from the way money was placed on Olympia, someone knew the horse wouldn't run to form that day. Was the horse doped? Alan is determined to get to the truth. Meanwhile in Ireland, trainer Tom Dougherty is thrilled he won't be losing his best horse Milesius - the hot favourite for the Cheltenham Champion Hurdle. The horse's new owner wants to keep Milesius at the Dougherty yard. When the day comes for Milesius to race at Cheltenham, it's decided that Alan will ride him. But dangerous men have the race in their pockets, and they'll go to any lengths to get the result they want.
