Letty Goodman discovers that someone is blackmailing jockey, Mike Grady, trying to make him lose a race on Hope, the racing colt belonging to the villagers of Heatherfield Hundred. The villagers are using their winnings to modernise their cottages and save them from being condemned. Two property dealers, Lovell and Brewer, want to cheaply buy the land the cottages stand on and they are secretly behind Clancy Wainwright, the girl blackmailing Mike.
