Summary
Death at the races is not uncommon. But three in one day, including the Cheltenham Gold Cup winning horse and a champion jockey, is more than enough to raise suspicions. Sid Halley finds there are several reasons why someone had set their sights on Huv Walker. Now Sid himself, a former jockey-turned detective, could be next on a killer's to-do list

Summary
It's the third death on Cheltenham Gold Cup day that really troubles supersleuth Sid Halley. Last seen in 1995's former champion jockey Halley knows all too well the perils of racing--but in his day, jockeys didn't usually reach the finish line with three .38 rounds in the chest. Yet this is precisely how he finds jockey Huw Walker, who only a few hours earlier, won the coveted Triumph Hurdle
