"It started as a bit of a lark, this idea of training and riding a horse in the Grand National. For Jonathan Meredith it was just something else to think about, an escape from the disaster that his life had become recently." Jonathan and his friend Peter, both embroiled in family conflicts, take the horse Dogwood (entered in the Grand National) and take time out from life to concentrate on one short-term goal: "the looming prospect of the race and its terrifying fences.".
