    Title: "A SENSATIONAL CESAREWITCH won by the Aga Khan's 'Charley's Mount' - a 100-1 chance - ridden by T. Pryor who rode 'Light Dragoon' also 100-1 ... in 1922".

    Various shots of jockeys on their horses riding through a gap in a tall fence, they trot past a large crowd of spectators, some are led by stable-hands.

    Intertitle: "The huge field of 34 are soon off ... for that gruelling 2 1/4 miles, the severest test of equine stamina in the World".

    L/S of the horses lining up at one end of a field for the start of the race. Panning shot follows the pack of horses as they run across the field. High angled L/S, looking from the top of a spectator stand, of the horses running around a large racing course, panning shot follows them as they race past the large crowds. L/S, looking over the heads of the crowd, of the horses racing towards the camera.

    M/S of the horses and jockeys at the end of the race, stable-hands and trainers enter to tend to their animals. M/S of a trainer and several stable-hands leading a horse and jockey towards the camera, the jockey smiles a lot - could this be the winner?
