Awesomeness or Meh?
I love these stories, the characters and the R.C. Bray performances, so I was interested to hear how this dramatisation would compare.
I got through it, but I much prefer the usual pairing of Craig Alanson and R.C. Bray brilliance.
Please go back to the original winning ( 5*) formula.
Like others I found the (not so background) music was a distraction rather than an enhancement.
This is the first time that I’ve not given 5 stars to one of these beer can filled adventures.

As one of the youngest ever winners of the Grand National, Nick ‘Foxy’ Foxton’s career as a world-class jockey is on perfect track until a near-fatal accident cuts his dream brutally short. But when he returns to Aintree as a spectator years later, nothing can prepare him for what unfolds. Minutes before the biggest event on the racing calendar, Nick’s affable American colleague Herb Kovak is shot at point-blank range, the gunman disappearing among the stunned crowd.

His father's son
Felix has produced a story with pace and excitement, set in the familiar backdrop (to Dick Francis fans) of equestrian pursuits.
An enjoyable thriller, which is characterised and delivered well by Michael Maloney.
The most appropriate compliment I can think of is... “one for all the Dick Francis fans”.
