This guided tour takes you past a number of the places that crime novelist and former champion steeplechase, Francis, featured in his realistic plots based in the spiritual home of horseracing. Visit the locations where you can visualise for yourself the impact of the bomb at the Rowley Mile Racecourse in Dead Heat or how the sales ring may have looked in Knockdown not to mention where the horse was tragically shot in Bonecrack. Finish your tour with a peep inside the Stallion Unit at the prestigious National Stud where the case of drug doping was uncovered in Banker before relaxing and reminiscing past storylines over a cream tea.
